NHSE&I, the Workforce Alliance and HealthTrust Europe have now announced that the waiver that enables suppliers to utilise distance learning as an alternative to face-to-face training is to be extended indefinitely. It is anticipated that the requirement for face-to-face training will be reintroduced in the future with agencies being given least 1 calendar month notice.
All frameworks have stated “It is expected that where Temporary Workers have been unable to undertake required face-to-face training as a result of Covid-19 restrictions, that training should now be completed online and all training records must be complete and updated by September 27th 2020. It is the supplier’s responsibility to ensure that all electronic learning complies with framework and NHS Employer Check Standards requirements.”
