Lead to Succeed with Grey Matter Learning

We spoke with one of our endorsed learning providers, Grey Matter Learning, about how they provided the Lead to Succeed module to a care organisation.

The Lead to Succeed programme which is provided by Grey Matter Learning and other Skills for Care endorsed learning providers is a practical learning programme aimed at aspiring managers and deputies in adult social care services.

It covers topics including supervision, change management, workplace culture and preparing for inspections.

The programme allows for flexibility in how it’s delivered to different care organisations, allowing learning providers to tailor their approach and provide bespoke variations of the training to meet different organisation’s needs.

This is what Grey Matter Learning has done, specifically tailoring the training to align with the unique processes, procedures, and organisational culture of the organisation they were supporting.

They receive positive feedback on the programme, with the care organisation saying they found the programme highly valuable and relevant to their roles and the organisation’s culture.
