Skills For Health Elearning modules now include stand-alone E-assessments. This means that learners who believe they already have necessary knowledge of the subject area can complete an assessment without having to complete the training again. For more information read our blog post on the topic here.

These robust stand-alone assessments have been added to all of the Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF) subjects.
