Nurses and midwives statutory and mandatory training requirements

The Trust has a responsibility to provide various statutory and mandatory training and to ensure that its staff attend. Statutory training is required to ensure that the Trust is meeting any legislative duties. Mandatory training is an organisational requirement to limit risk and maintain safe working practice.

  • You must attend a Trust induction in your first month of starting work at UHSFT.
  • During your first year you must also complete the statutory and mandatory training sessions that were not covered in your induction.
  • Each year thereafter you should complete the sessions again (unless otherwise specified) to ensure and record that you are up to date.
You'll be able to see your specific statutory and mandatory training requirements under 'my statutory and mandatory training' when you log in to our VLE website

If you don't have log in details for the VLE you can still view our statutory and mandatory courses.
