This interactive seminar looks in more depth at issues introduced in our Being prepared for CQC inspection digital learning module. Completion of the digital learning module is not required to join the seminar.


We thoroughly enjoyed the training, and the delivery was outstanding. Some managers are very experienced and some very new to the role and all gained new skills.

Subjects covered

  • Why inspection is important
  • CQC standards and legislation
  • CQC Single Assessment Framework 
  • CQC monitoring and inspection process, including ratings
  • Involving others in the inspection process
  • The importance of quality assurance
  • Evidencing that you meet CQC standards

It was great! The presenters were really knowledgeable and supportive. CQC is everyone's business and we need to be prepared all year round. It has reinforced that we should be prepared at any time as inspections are a good monitoring tool to ensure we are providing the best quality care at all times. It is good to know what we need to focus in on and how to prepare the wider team for an inspection.

Learning outcomes

You will:

  • understand successful approaches to being ready for the CQC inspector calls and visits
  • know how to map out how your service can prepare your staff team for CQC inspection
  • understand what you will be expected to evidence and how to demonstrate your service meets or exceed what the CQC expect.


I feel more confident having gone through this course, knowing there are others in similar situations and that there is support out there to improve the rating.
