Core and Mandatory Training Courses

Welcome to our listing of our Core and Mandatory training courses for care workers. All of our courses have been developed to meet the needs of your end-users and help your service achieve full CQC compliance. Our courses strictly follow the Skills for Care recommended guidelines and are mapped to the Key Lines of Enquiry (KLOE’s) and CQC Fundamental Standards.

What is Mandatory Training for Care Workers?

Mandatory training for Care Workers is all of the training that care workers are required to undertake to learn the fundamental knowledge, skills and behaviours necessary to provide safe, effective and compassionate care. It is a UK Statutory Requirement (Regulation 18: Staffing) that care providers; support, train, supervise and appraise care workers, to enable them to carry out the duties they are required to perform, and to meet the requirements of Section 2 (Fundamental Standards) of The Health and Social Care Act 2008. Fundamental Standards are the standards below which your care must never fall, as assessed by The Care Quality Commission (CQC), the regulatory body for all regulated Health and Social Care services in England.

About our training

All of the core and mandatory training courses that we provide are designed to meet the care needs of your end-users, and help you meet the regulatory CQC compliance standards against which your service will be assessed. The content can be adapted to include your organisations core values, mission, and policies and procedures, and we can also include examples of documents that you use to make the training completely relevant to your organisation and the expectations that you have in place.
