Mandatory and statutory training requirements for care support workers | QCS

Dear Sheila,

I am currently involved with developing a trainee Health Care Support Worker programme and am having difficulty pinning down the requirements in relation to mandatory and statutory training requirements for such workers. The trainees will engage in work experience across a range of settings across the primary care and Voluntary care sectors.. Is there one place that I could look to gain the definitive ‘list’ of requirements. Please advise.

Many thanks,

Doug Wilson

Dear Doug,

You should be able to find everything that you need to know on the Skills for Care website.

You should particularly look at the section about the Care Certificate.

Best wishes,
