Mandatory training grace period ends 30 September

Date: 09 September 2020

The six-month mandatory training grace period from April to September was to allow flexibility for departments experiencing operational challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic. Colleagues were encouraged to maintain their refresher compliance where online training was available. Our target level for mandatory training is 95%. Compliance stood at 89% at the beginning of April and has been maintained at 87% - thank you for maintaining this level through such a busy time for us all. 

Please log on to MyESR and check your compliance status and update training as required. Managers have been contacted about members of their team who need to do this. See People First for details of face-to-face training currently available. New starters should complete all on-line training and where face-to-face training is not available, managers should review activities undertaken until training is available. 

We are also reviewing the situation to enable getting back on track with PDPRs and will issue revised guidance shortly.
