Course Outline

The Well-Led programme is a national development programme.  It was developed by Skills for Care, in partnership with registered managers.  If you are a manager of adult social care services, this programme was developed for you.  The programme is grounded in the reality of social care delivery and draws upon the experience of those who understand the day-to-day challenges of leading a care team.

Well-led is delivered over four interactive modules. Each module will be a blend of discussion, film footage and activities to appeal to different learning styles. You will receive a workbook for each module which also includes recommendations for further reading and resource references.

Organisations rated good and outstanding by CQC share examples of practice to enhance learning and understanding. Well-Led is underpinned by models of leadership that can be practically applied to deliver change and promote best practice.

The programme is delivered over four full-day workshops. Learners should leave the programme feeling empowered, confident, connected with others and well-equipped to effectively lead a workforce with the right values to provide high quality person-centred care.

Each session focusses on a different element of care leadership.  At the end of every session, learners will complete an action plan and will be expected to report back on their progress at the next session.  The focus is on achieving practical outcomes, rather than simply being a theoretical exercise.  Peer support is encouraged and professional relationships formed during the course often continue after completion of the programme.

The Well-Led national development programme is aimed at registered managers and other managers currently working in adult social care settings who want to develop their leadership skills and knowledge. It is suitable for both new and experienced managers in the social care sector. It is designed to enable leaders to deliver care in line with the expectations of a well-led service. The series of practical modules will develop managers’ leadership skills, enabling them to advance their service and have a real impact in their workplace.

  1. Sibongile says:

    I attended the Well led pilot programme, it was superb, interactive and thought provoking. I came out with a range of ideas from everyone involved. Havita is knowledgeable and experienced, she explains things in such an easy way to understand. She clearly understands what it is like to lead a team. I hope to use Coleman for more training. Thank you
