CSTF Aligned

With a highly mobile workforce, employers often need to identify recruits’ previous training. Where information is lacking, people can repeat training unnecessarily, wasting time and money. The UK CSTF addresses this issue. It allows employers to recognise statutory/mandatory training to a standard, trust that information and reduce duplication of training. Launched in 2013, the UK CSTF is maintained and updated by Skills for Health. Find out more here

Many organisations have already declared their alignment to the UK CSTF. By sharing this information, employer organisations can recognise where training delivered in other organisations is in compliance with the UK CSTF and thereby help to prevent unnecessary duplication of training as staff move between roles and organisations. You can check if an employer/healthcare provider is aligned to the CSTF here.

Commercial Training Providers may also undergo CSTF verification, where Skills for Health has reviewed the learning offer and confirmed it is aligned to the learning outcomes defined in the UK CSTF.
