We recommend that all new and aspiring managers complete the Manager Induction Standards to be competent and confident in their role. With the refreshed version launched this year, we released our workbook Becoming a manager to help your new managers complete the standards effectively.
The Becoming a manager workbook is ideal for large national organisations to use as part of a standard induction programme for managers. Not only does it show that you are willing to invest in your managers by purchasing the workbook for them, it is also:
- compliant with CQC recommendations to use reputable learning and development providers and materials
- great value for money – saving you money on expensive external training, and more importantly…
- ensures that all of your new managers have consistent training and therefore deliver the same high quality of care.
In addition the workbook provides a wealth of information and reflection which will save line managers a lot of time that they otherwise may need to commit to new managers. Becoming a manager also comes with a USB stick with all of the blank exercises included which you can use over again, useful for topping up and reviewing training.
We can also come into your organisation to help those senior managers putting people through the Manager Induction Standards. If you would like more information on this, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
‘Strong leadership has a pivotal role in both high-performing services and bringing about improvement in adult social care. At registered manager level strong leadership was characterised by individuals with an innovative, outward or forward looking approach who were open to feedback and actively sought out best practice to steer improvement.’ P.24, CQC State of ASC Services Report.
Becoming a Manager supports new managers to develop these approaches from the outset.
The Manager Induction Standards have also been reviewed to be consistent with new Level 4 Certificate (available now) and new Level 5 diploma in Leadership in Care qualification for leaders and managers (available from January 2018).
In fact, the 11 standards of the Manager Induction Standards are named exactly the same as the 11 units in the new Level 4 Certificate and upcoming Level 5 diploma.

Mapped to the Manager Induction Standards, these two new online learning modules can help as evidence towards meeting standards 1 and 9.
They are simple to follow and reflect different settings across adult social care and are just £15.00 each to complete.
Real life case studies and scenarios help learners reflect and complete self-directed learning. They can be accessed anytime so you can learn wherever and whenever suits you. You can also save your progress and come back to complete the module without having to start again.
The ‘leadership and management’ module explores:
- the difference between leadership and management in adult social care
- different styles and adapting them to different situations
- leading and developing teams.
The ‘manage self’ module explores:
- how to manage your own behaviour
- how to manage your own workload
- ways to develop yourself
- skills to develop the vision of your organisation.
