About the Statutory and Mandatory Training programme

The UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF) sets out 10 statutory and mandatory training topics for all staff working in health and social care settings. The CSTF includes nationally agreed learning outcomes and training delivery standards.

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with a range of subject matter experts to develop high quality, national e-learning training sessions, which address all the knowledge outcomes at level 1 and 2 and at level 3, where appropriate for e-learning.

The sessions are freely available to all health and social care staff.

It is the responsibility of individual health and social care employer organisations to ensure that their workforce complete the appropriate training to comply with their statutory and mandatory requirements. It is also an employer’s responsibility to determine the best mode of delivering the training, whether that is face-to-face, e-learning or a blended approach. The CSTF provides further guidance on this.

The statutory and mandatory training has been redesigned as short and interactive e-learning sessions which include scenarios, case studies and knowledge checks. Each session takes about 20 minutes to complete and can be accessed via mobiles and tablets.

e-Learning sessions 

  • Level 1

  • Level 2

  • Level 3


These are mini e-learning sessions, one for each topic and level in the CSTF, which pose two, randomly selected, multiple-choice questions per learning outcome. We advise learners to allow about 10 minutes to complete each session. The eAssessments have an 80% pass rate and allow learners three attempts. If they fail, they are encouraged to review the e-learning session. As learners work through the eAssessment, they get feedback on both correct and incorrect answers.

How to access

If you already have an account with e-LfH, then you can enrol on to the Statutory and Mandatory Training 2017 programme by logging in to the e-LfH Hub, selecting My Account > Enrolment and selecting the programme. You can then access the programme immediately in the My e-Learning section.

If you are a manager and would like further information on accessing activity reports for staff in your organisation, then please go to:

NHS healthcare staff in England

The Statutory and Mandatory programme is also available to NHS healthcare staff via the Electronic Staff Record (ESR). Accessing this e-learning via ESR means that your completions will transfer when you move between NHS organisations.

Further details are available here.

Access from other Learning Management Systems

The Statutory and Mandatory sessions are supported by the AICC communication standard. This allows for remote Learning Management Systems (LMS) to launch the sessions from the e-LfH content server as if they were loaded locally. Enrolment and tracking of usage is retained at the organisation’s LMS. If your local LMS supports AICC, please contact our support desk and we will provide you with the relevant links and instructions to set up courses.
