The Care Quality Commission, in consultation with Skills for Care, have produced supporting notes for CQCs assessors and inspectors to clarify the training expected for registered persons and staff working in adult social care services. If you are a social care provider you may also find this information useful as it clarifies how the Common Induction Standards are to be used, and highlights the qualifications needed by registered managers.
Access the document on the CQC website.
Skills for Care have also produced their own more detailed guidance on how adult social care providers can meet workforce regulations. An updated version of this useful document is available from the Skills for Care website.
