Image: Health Education England endorses the UK Core Skills Training Framework.Since its launch in 2013, the UK Core Skills Training Framework has become widely recognised as the benchmark for statutory and mandatory training within the health sector. Nearly 1,200 individuals are now registered to use the Framework and over 100 organisations (including 90 NHS Trusts) have submitted a formal declaration of alignment of their training provision to the Framework.

Health Education England recently reinforced its endorsement of the Framework by asking all LETBs to support the framework and promote its adoption among local employers. Further, in response to demands for inclusion of additional Framework subjects, work is now progressing to develop a number of new clinical/care subjects including; Communication, Consent, Dementia, Person Centred Care, Privacy and Dignity, Fluids and Nutrition.
