Mandatory training for staff

Statutory and mandatory training is vital in creating a positive, safe and healthy workplace that delivers high quality care for our community.

Designed by national experts, the training is relevant, accessible and inclusive.

The majority of the modules are online, which means it can be achieved anywhere, and at any time.

It is essential for every member of staff to be given the time and support needed to complete it.

As members of #TeamIOWNHS it is our duty to keep ourselves, our colleagues, and the people we care for, safe.

The consequences of not keeping up to date could be damaging to us personally, professionally and as an organisation. 

In the NHS Staff Survey 2020, we were acknowledged as the most improved NHS Trust in the region for Safety Culture and by keeping up to date with our mandatory training, we can continue to improve and deliver the best services we can for our community.

These are the improvements we have already made

Watch Karen Camarat, Sister on Apply Ward, tell us why mandatory training is so important to her: 

We are also running a Management Development Programme known as Management Essentials. This programme provides line managers with the resources, development, confidence and support to effectively fulfil their role.

One of theses sessions will explore how we can improve our safety culture through mandatory training compliance.
