Health and Social Care Course - best price £55/person

The Health and Social Care Course fulfill requirements where the service provider is both an individual or partnership

The intention of this regulation is to ensure that people who use services have their needs met because the service is provided by an appropriate person.
To meet the requirements of this regulation, providers must register with CQC under Section 10 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008. The registered provider or partners of the registered provider must:
• Be of good character.
• Be able to properly perform tasks that are intrinsic to their role.
• Have the necessary qualifications, competence, skills and experience to carry on the regulated activity or supervise its management.
• Be able to supply CQC with documents that confirm their suitability

The CQC is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. It provides extensive guidance to help providers to comply with regulations, the full contents of which can be found here.

In terms of staffing, the CQC requires health and social care providers to:

  • have sufficient numbers of workers who are suitably qualified and competent, with the necessary skills and experience to meet the needs of the individuals receiving support.
  • provide care staff with support, training, professional development, supervision and appraisals that are necessary for them to carry out their role and responsibilities.
  • support care staff to obtain further qualifications and provide evidence, where required, to the appropriate regulator to show that they meet the professional standards needed to continue to practice.
Mandatory health and social care courses for care home staff:

Health and social care workers require adequate induction training and annual refresher training to ensure that they remain up to date with recommended practice and regulatory requirements. Training is defined as mandatory if it meets one or more of the following criteria:

  • It is a statutory requirement (such as the Health and Safety at Work Act).
  • All staff across the organisation require the Health and Social Care training.
  • It is a CQC or local authority requirement.

The most common mandatory training subjects as part of Health and Social Care courses for care homes include:

  • Health and Safety
  • Fire Safety
  • Equality, Diversity and Human Rights
  • Infection, Prevention and Control
  • Manual Handling
  • Food Hygiene/Food Safety Awareness
  • Safeguarding Adults

The full list of mandatory training requirements for an organisation depends on the services it provides, as well as the organisation’s type and size. All care organisations have a legal responsibility to provide staff with Health & Safety awareness training, including Fire Safety. Moving and Handling training is also mandatory and if staff are involved with preparing food or assisting at meal times then Food Safety and Hygiene training will also be mandatory. Additional mandatory training requirements might include Data Protection/Information Governance, Complaints Handling etc…
