Retake Guidelines

Blue Stream Academy eLearning Suite Manager's Guide

As there are no strict guidelines to most of the training modules, we expect all Practice Managers to have an active role in their recommendations to their staff. This list has been compiled with the help of several Practice Managers and CCG contacts and is accurate at the date of 1st July, 2017. Any changes to current legislation regarding any of the modules shall be sent immediately to all Practice Managers and CCG’s.

As per CQC Guidance Notes (October 2011), service providers and registered managers should assess the need for refresher training according to the service type, care setting and dependent on the role and functions of the worker. This should be reflected in both the service’s workforce development plan and in individual plans for each practitioner. An annual refresher programme should be considered.
