Leadership and management

We understand that high quality care and skilled, qualified and confident leaders and managers go hand in hand.

If you're working in a leadership or management role in social care you're not only responsible for supporting those who need care and support, but for taking care of your staff and influencing the quality of care across the sector.

That's why we’ve created a variety of development programmes, tools and resources to help leaders and managers at all levels, feel supported in their roles.

On this part of our website, you can find information on our leadership programmes for registered managers, together with tools to enable you to develop a positive workplace culture for your staff and support their development through effectively managing people's performance.You'll also find information on how to develop your leadership capacity if you're a new or aspiring director in social care, or if you're already a senior leader

There’s also information on our practical resources designed to support you with workforce planning and development for social work leaders and managers, as well as resources to help you meet CQC standards.

Registered managers play a key role in raising quality standards. We support registered managers at every stage of their career and have resources to help you with the issues they face on a day-to-day basis. Our LQF 360° assessment tool can help managers identify where their strengths and weaknesses are so that they can further develop. 

Our Manager Induction Standards (MIS) set out what a manager needs to know and understand to perform well in their role. You can find out more about these sector favourites in our Standards and Legislation section
