Recent changes to the Statutory and Mandatory Training (SMT) e-learning have added even greater flexibility to this high-quality programme. Firstly, the e-assessment is now embedded in each module rather than as a standalone component. This means that learners can switch between the learning content and assessment with ease – providing a much slicker learning experience.

Secondly, and by popular demand, the Data Security Awareness Module is now available to Tpurchase individually at a cost of £25.

The SMT Programme covers the 10 statutory and mandatory training topics for all staff who work in health and social care settings in the UK.

It is mapped to the UK Core Skills Training Framework – which includes nationally agreed learning outcomes and training delivery standards in areas such as infection control, safeguarding, manual handling and data security.

The programme has been developed by NHS England e-Learning for Healthcare. For further details, go to our SMT programme page.
