The General Social Care Council and National Care Standards Commission have launched an inter-professional qualification for health and social care inspectors.

The qualification aims to ensure the 1,500 staff in England and Wales who are joining the NCSC from a range of backgrounds, including councils and health authorities, have similar knowledge and skills.

Inspectors will be trained and tested in key competencies for the profession, such as registration, inspection, dealing with concerns and complaints and the enforcement of regulations.

GSCC chief executive Lynne Berry said: 'Inspectors play an extremely important role in ensuring safe and high quality care is provided to some very vulnerable members of society.

'This new qualification will formally recognise the wealth of experience which already exists, and enable inspectors to learn new skills as part of a nationally-recognised framework.'
