Launch of The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training on LD and Autism eLearning
The Health and Care Act 2022 introduced a requirement that from July 2022 regulated CQC registered service providers must ensure their staff receive training on learning disability and autism that is appropriate to their role. The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training aims to provide the health and care workforce with the right skills and knowledge to provide safe, compassionate and informed care to autistic people and people with a learning disability. Health Education England (HEE) and partners at DHSC, NHS England and Skills for Care have now launched the eLearning element of this training. The standardised training packages and the ‘train the trainer’ package for the health and social care workforce are being finalised to be available in 2023. More information here.
