August 30, 2022
Published by Dudley CVS

This new programme from the Social Care Institute for Excellence and the University of Birmingham is designed to support practice leaders to demonstrate leadership through engaging with academic insights, critically reflecting on their own leadership, and developing a community of practice with their peers.
This programme builds in the learning from an initial pilot programme and the considerable experience of supporting education and research on strengths-based practice, as well as being co-produced with people who draw on care and support.

Who is the programme for?
The programme is designed for practitioners working in children’s and adults’ social care, including (but not limited to): Team leaders or managers and assistant leaders or managers, senior social work practitioners, consultant social workers or senior occupational therapists.

How much time will I need to commit?
The programme will typically run for seven months. Participants will be expected to commit at least 15 days. This will include engaging with formal learning and undertaking work-based activities. Employers will be expected to support participants through providing them with time to engage with the learning and to undertake the work-based tasks.
