As the Sector Skills Council for Health, we have a responsibility to provide and support the UK’s healthcare workforce with the most up to date information and training guidance.

Whilst everyone has a role to play in the prevention and control of healthcare-associated infection, the current public health concerns of Coronavirus across the UK, mean that more so now than ever, it’s imperative organisations ensure their workforce training is up to date, allowing all staff to operate in their roles effectively.

Launched last week, our new Skills for Health Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) elearning course is now available, making certain the UK’s public sector employees have access to the best possible training and guidance to limit the risk of infection.

As the leading provider for healthcare elearning across the UK health sector, our IPC elearning is developed in partnership with the Infection Prevention Society and in line with the Skills for Health Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF) and includes level 1 and level 2 courses.

Visit Skills Platform, our partner website, to book either IPC Level 1 or IPC Level 2 today!
