Course Outline


Well defined career progression is a key element in retaining and growing a high quality workforce. This includes the leaders of the future. Workers with excellent care and support skills often find themselves unprepared for the very different knowledge and skills required as a manger. This programme effectively prepares learners to embrace these challenges, using reflective practice and practical skills.

Reference is made throughout the programme to CQC inspection standards, reports, expectations, processes and so on. The final workshop is entirely focused on the CQC inspection process.

The revised Lead to Succeed programme is designed around the Manager Induction Standards and the specification for Level 4 Certificate in Principles of Leadership and Management in Adult Care.

The programme is delivered through five full-day workshops:

  • Successful Behaviours for leaders and mangers
