New CPD programmes launched for managers and future leaders in social care

Skills for Care has launched three continuing professional development (CPD) modules to develop the skills and knowledge of managers and future leaders in care services.

The modules cover the fundamental building blocks managers need to lead and develop busy, high-quality services focusing on the importance of self-management, developing a positive workplace culture and performance management.

The CPD modules also offer an important opportunity for managers to think and talk more widely about what practical and emotional support they need, including peer-to-peer networks, supervision, succession planning and recognition. The CPD modules are in addition to our existing leadership programmes; Lead to Succeed and Well-led.

This year there’s £3 million of targeted funding, from the Workforce Development Fund (WDF), to support managers and deputies develop the skills and knowledge they need to lead high quality services. Employers can claim money from the fund towards the cost of managers completing the one-day modules. A number of funded places are also available from Skills for Care’s endorsed providers and the WDF partnerships.

Skills for Care Interim CEO Andy Tilden said: “Skills for Care believes that managers need, and deserve, the same opportunities for recognised CPD as other professionals in our sector, like social workers, nurses and occupational therapists.

“We’ve backed up that commitment with a significant amount of targeted funding to make sure managers, and those who will lead in the future, can access the CPD modules which can only lead to high quality services in our communities.”
