This sixteen month programme is divided into four modules and designed so participants can join or leave at any point. It is not intended to replicate the Level 5 qualification, but to focus on supporting the learner in understanding the day-to-day issues which can arise and the RM role in the operation of the home as well as its’ development. The programme follows 4 modules with a roll on/roll off approach. Each module consists of 4 days of underpinning knowledge, peer review, reflection and support and can be completed as a single unit or part of the course. Organisations are asked to commit to module-by-module and to give two months’ notice if their participant will be dropping off the next module.
The course has been designed with Responsible Individuals so module is themed around issues identified by organisations and derived from the Leadership and Management Quality Standard alongside associated standards and regulations. A core theme is the voice of children and young people.
This programme is intended to support organisations and individuals to develop leadership and management skills towards becoming a Registered Manager. It is being developed in response to a wish to ‘grow your own’ from the SW Responsible Individual Network.
