The Skills for Health Quality Mark
The Skills for Health Quality Mark – the first for the UK's health sector – provides a framework that defines and endorses superior learning and training standards that healthcare employers need to cultivate a world-class workforce.
Achievement of the Quality Mark recognises that providers of training have met the high standards expected by health care employers.
The Quality Mark endorses the quality of the delivery of training and learning and its suitability for the health sector and will give health employers greater confidence when investing in workforce development.
In addition, the Quality Mark will assure that the staff delivering training have the right knowledge and skills and maintain these through continued professional development. The Quality Mark is also a benchmarking tool allowing training provider organisations to measure the quality of their own delivery with specific reference to the health sector.
Holders of the Skills for Health Quality Mark will be able to use the Quality Mark logo on materials and advertising, demonstrating to employers that they have a deep understanding of the health sector and translate that into the design, delivery and impact of the learning/training courses they offer.
The Quality Mark is available for learning programmes offered by training providers, further education colleges and NHS Trusts/Boards offering internal training.
“In light of the recently published reports by Robert Francis QC, Sir Bruce Keogh and Professor Don Berwick, all of which emphasises the role of students and learners in relation to the quality of care for patients, the importance of assuring the quality of education delivery against standards in the Quality Mark will be highly welcomed.”
