Overview
The Health and Care Act 2022 introduced a requirement that CQC regulated service providers ensure their staff receive training on learning disability and autism which is appropriate to the person’s role. This is to ensure the health and social care workforce have the right skills and knowledge to provide safe, compassionate, and informed care to autistic people and people with a learning disability.
The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training is the government’s preferred and recommended training for health and social care staff. Training is co-delivered by trainers with lived experience of learning disability and autism.
