What is Mandatory Training for Care Workers?

Mandatory training in health and social care is a fundamental requirement for care workers in the UK. This training ensures that all individuals within the sector possess the necessary skills and knowledge to deliver high-quality care, meeting the standards set by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Understanding the UK’s health and social care training requirements is crucial for maintaining high standards in care homes, residential facilities, and other care settings.

Mandatory care training is the essential training that health and social care managers must provide to their staff to comply with statutory and legal requirements. This training aligns with critical legal and regulatory frameworks such as the Health and Safety at Work Act, manual handling techniques, the Care Certificate, and the Core Skills Training Framework.

The Care Certificate, developed jointly by Skills for Care, Health Education England, and Skills for Health, is a set of agreed standards that define the knowledge, skills, and behaviours expected of specific job roles in the health and social care sectors.
