Monitoring: Your compliance with the above modules will be monitored by the Board using a workforce information tool called MicroStratgey. Your Line Manager will be able to access reports for their area(s) of responsibility, highlighting what stage of compliance each member of their team is currently at. In order to ensure that the modules you have completed on Learnpro are included on compliance reports, you must check that your Identification Number on Learnpro is your current NHSGGC payroll number. As part of a proactive programme of empowering staff to keep track of their own statutory and mandatory training progress, a monthly notification email has been designed for all staff which provides an easy and quick way to view the status of your training and will go amber when you have 3 months or fewer remaining for each of the topics.
Additional training: In addition to completing the Core Statutory and Mandatory Training modules required for all staff in NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde, you may also be required to undertake Role Specific topics depending on your role. Your Line Manager will advise you of any additional training requirements you may need to complete.
