Statutory, Mandatory and Induction e-Learning Training Programme

Working with partners, HEE is leading a programme to improve the consistency, quality and cost-effectiveness of statutory and mandatory e-learning training for all NHS staff, and to look at options to create a single transferable approach to e-induction.


We recognise that while some elements of statutory, mandatory and induction training can be standardised and may be addressed via e-learning, other elements vary locally. We also recognise that many organisations have a view about what constitutes core learning for healthcare staff. To address this, HEE has set up a Steering Group, co-chaired by Professor Simon Gregory, Geography Director of Education and Quality, Midlands and East, and Alan Ryan, Interim Director of National Programmes and National Programme Director for e-Learning for Healthcare, supported by representatives from HEE Quality Framework, Postgraduate Deans, Senior Managers Forum, NHS Litigation Authority, NHS Improvement, NHS Employers, HR Directors and Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) leads from various HEE local teams.

The first phase of the programme involves the development of high quality, national e-learning training modules for the 10 core statutory and mandatory topics defined in the UK Core Skills Training Framework (ref). This will include reviewing and updating the existing high quality packages and developing new training materials where necessary.

The updated modules will be available from March 2017.

The second phase of the programme will review current approaches to junior doctors’ e-induction training and seek to improve its consistency, quality and cost-effectiveness. In the longer term, we hope to utilise learning from this work to consider how it can be applied to other professions within the NHS.  Further information about this second phase of the programme will be communicated over the coming months.
