Changes to mandatory training

There are a number of changes to mandatory training being made as part of an ongoing process of aligning our mandatory training with Mersey Care’s training standards. The following changes that will or have already been made are:

  1. Safeguarding adults level 1 will now need to be completed every three years by those staff members that are required to complete it
  2. All staff members will now be required to complete Level 2 prevent training. This is a change for those who have previously been expected to complete Level 1
  3. Health and safety will now become a three yearly requirement for all staff members

Other changes will be communicated to staff in the coming weeks, but these will require some staff members to complete training less frequently.
