CQC Compliance

Both CQC guidance and Skills for Care advice highlight the responsibility of the service provider and registered manager to continue to improve care standards through a well-trained workforce.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the health and social care regulator for England. Their aim is to ensure better care for everyone in hospital, in a care home and at home. Training is a key component in ensuring standards of service are met and increasingly providers are required to provide evidence that health and social care training is not only being provided but that learners are achieving specific outcomes. Legislative requirements must be adhered to.

More and more care providers are achieving their CQC outcomes with the support of high quality online courses from us.

We guarantee that by using our courses your staff training will:

  • Meet CQC standards of compliance for continuing professional development
  • Be available on demand 24/7 365 days a year
  • Cost a fraction of conventional classroom training
  • Provide certificates of achievement on successful completion
  • Provide reports demonstrating CQC compliance

Upon successfully completing the course and passing any associated assessments, the learner is able to print off their own certificate as evidence of learning and CPD hours completed.

Regardless of industry or sector, most employees are now required to undertake some form of CPD. As we work predominantly in knowledge and service economies, the updating of skills and knowledge is critical in keeping abreast of industry changes, maintaining professional competence and ensuring that qualifications do not become obsolete.
