Manager Induction Standards
The Manager Induction Standards (MIS) set out what a manager needs to know and understand to perform well in their role. They're a versatile tool for:
- new managers - those new to management and those new in post who have previously managed other care services.
- existing managers - to use as a benchmark of their own practice and potential learning and development needs, especially if their role has changed over the years.
- aspiring managers - to plan an appropriate development programme, increase their understanding of the expectations of a manager role and increase their potential of securing management positions in the future.
