‘Passporting’ prior mandatory/statutory training:

The Trust is keen to ‘passport’ previously completed mandatory/statutory training from a previous organisation onto your UHBW training record, providing it meets necessary criteria.

Core skills training records can only be accepted if they are from a recognisable NHS health body. If accepted, the records will be validated and transferred to your UHBW learning account after your start date and will reduce the number of topics you will need to complete.

If you have any records to submit, please do so via this form https://forms.office.com/e/pYYgjLqPPi – if you have any questions about this form please contact Passporting@uhbw.nhs.uk

Covid-19 Instructions:

Do not attend registration if you test positive for Covid, in which case you should self-isolate and contact us. We will arrange an alternative start date.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Kind regards,
