The survey aims to explore the overall effectiveness of the CSTF, better understand the user experience, learning outcomes, and identify any gaps in the content. It also aims to understand if there are any barriers to its use and look at how statutory/mandatory training delivery can be made more consistent across England.
Emma Turner, Programme Lead, Enabling Staff Movement said: “This is the first time that we have undertaken such a comprehensive review of CSTF. We are very keen to build a picture of the user experience, what works well what could be done better. The survey will also give us some insight into whether the training offer provides all the resources that staff need and if it is aligned to the requirements of their roles, existing knowledge, and skills without unnecessary duplication. It will also help us identify any issues and opportunities for making the experience better for users.”
About the review of the Core Skills Training Framework
The review is seeking feedback from a variety of staff within organisations who undertake statutory and mandatory training (whether or not those organisations are aligned to the CSTF). The review has prepared two surveys to collate feedback across the healthcare landscape. NHS staff and human resource/learning and development leaders will be invited to take part in online surveys. If you would like any more information about the review, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Survey One – All Staff
This is open to all NHS staff to share their own perspectives on statutory and mandatory training. It has been prepared to understand views from across the NHS on statutory and mandatory training and how improvements can be made to support all staff working as part of the NHS. Take part and complete the survey here.
Survey Two – People Professionals
This is open for all People Professionals involved in, for example, Human Resources or Learning and Development, or those who are part of an organisation’s management team. They will be asked to share their views on alignment to the CSTF, the delivery of training, and how the framework could be improved. This survey should be completed by one individual from the organisation, on behalf of the whole organisation. Take part and complete the survey here.
The review will also be scheduling virtual focus groups to discuss statutory and mandatory training in further detail with People Professionals (for example, Human Resources/Learning and Development professionals, and those who are part of an organisation’s management team). If individuals would like to participate in one of the focus groups, they can sign up via the survey or by contacting HEE at email@example.com
The survey will close on Friday 19th November 2021.
