STEP - North West Only

Systemwide Training and Employment Passport

The North West Lead Employer Training and Employment Passport (STEP) is an online passport that allows the transfer of mandatory training and employment information between the organisations to support the greater mobility of the healthcare workforce, and to reduce the duplication of employment checks and training. It has been developed in collaboration with Health Education England and St. Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

The Passport system was launched in June 2019, initially with just the training module containing information on core NHS statutory and mandatory training, as per the Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF). Currently, 32 Acute/ Mental Health Trusts and 50 GP Practices in the North West use STEP to verify training records and streamline their induction process. Only verified users at the Host Organisations are able to access the system and view a colleague's information.
