Manager Induction Standards – Skills for Care

Course  Aims

The aim of this course is to give learners the knowledge and skills required to qualify as a ‘new’ manager to a wide variety and all sizes of social care settings.

This course is aimed at managers new in post or existing managers who have previously managed other care services.  It is also useful for aspiring managers to help support their development.  Although these standards are not mandatory it is recommended that the core standards are completed within six months of taking up a management role.

These Manager Induction Standards do not include the knowledge required to practice in general social care.  Anyone undertaking this course should already be experienced in practising social care or should have undertaken the Common induction Standards for care before taking up a management role.

The course will develop the knowledge and understanding required to help learners gain basic management and effective communication skills.

The course covers the eight core standards and four optional standards.  The course can be delivered over a period of one to five days in any combination of face to face training and distance learning workbook training in order to meet the needs of the care provider and the management role being undertaken.

Learners are to undertake practical and written assessment.
