Case Study: Award winning mandatory compliance training across a Foundation Trust
South Staffordshire and Shropshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust’s Learning and Leadership Development team has worked with Virtual College to embrace technology and deliver mandatory training to 3,300 existing staff and induction training for new starters.
Before the implementation of Virtual College training the Trust was running 193 face-to-face sessions a year which are no longer needed.
“This has been resulted in the Trust benefitting from around 3087 hours in time savings so far!
"The estimated time saved over a three year period for a typical mental health nurse to complete the required core mandatory training having started as a new employee is circa 15 hours… that’s two days of time saved for each new nurse we employ!”
– Theresa Shaw, Head of Leaning and Leadership Development.
Their innovative approach has made it easier for them to reach the Trust’s geographically remote services and released valuable time to focus on improving quality rather than delivering mandatory training.
Their successes led to them winning the Chris Holey award for innovation in 2015.
