Health Education England (HEE) has updated and refreshed the e-learning training sessions for the ten core statutory and mandatory topics as defined in the UK Core Skills Training Framework for the health and social care workforce.
The e-learning sessions, which can be accessed free of charge via HEE’s e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) hub and via the Electronic Staff Record (ESR), have been updated with content provided by subject matter experts across the ten topics which include:
- Conflict Resolution (L1)
- Equality, Diversity and Human Rights (L1)
- Fire Safety (L1)
- Health, Safety and Welfare (L1)
- Infection Prevention and Control (L1)
- Moving and Handling (L1)
- Preventing Radicalisation (L1)
- Resuscitation (L1)
The e-learning sessions on Safeguarding Children, Safeguarding Adults, Information Governance and level 2 sessions will be updated and available by end of June 2017. The existing e-learning sessions for these topics will remain available on the e-LfH hub and ESR for staff to access.
Alan Ryan, Director of National Programmes, HEE said:
“The updated suite of core statutory and mandatory e-learning sessions will ensure consistency in quality and the definition and delivery of such training. This will also make the completion of statutory and mandatory training more efficient thanks to the centralised approach for both learners and trainers, especially as the e-learning is available to the whole health and social care workforce, including students on placement.”
In addition to including updated content the sessions also have more graphically rich and engaging content as the programme has been redeveloped using a new authoring tool, Adapt, which allows greater interactivity to reinforce learning.
The short and high-impact sessions have been developed to allow learners to complete the training and then progress to the assessment. There is also the option for learners to proceed straight to the assessment without completing the training, if they are confident in the subject area.
