Who decides what CQC Mandatory Training is?

Skills for Care have created a Core and Mandatory training guide that has been produced in partnership with a panel of social care employers, learning providers and representative organisations and was updated in line with CQC’s revised inspection framework. This training ensures that all staff members are equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to maintain safety and compliance within their roles.

Skills for Care and My Learning Cloud are both passionate about ensuring learning is not merely a 'tick box' exercise to repeat or reconfirm prior knowledge; it serves several critical purposes.

Why is core training important?

One reason is the introduction of new legislation or best practices. It is crucial in our sector that we stay current with these changes and be trained in how to apply them to their work so My Learning Cloud's team work quickly and efficiently to ensure our courses are accurate and up to date.

Additionally, new risks may emerge, necessitating updates in training. These risks could stem from new equipment, changes to the environment, policy modifications, procedural updates, or the specific needs of new clients or those accessing care.

Moreover, refresher training is often required or recommended at specific time intervals to ensure ongoing compliance and competence, My Learning Cloud promotes this with adjustable validities to suit your organisations needs. Monitoring worker competency and gathering feedback is essential to ensure that employees continue to demonstrate the necessary skills for their roles.
