The South West Responsible Individual Network asked dialogue to develop a challenging programme of leadership development for experienced and aspiring Registered Managers to really explore how to manage their homes. Beginning with a detailed 360 degree individual assessment of your leadership skills the course will run on to how you manage your team, leading on performance, effective inspections, and close work with your RI. 

Following a highly successful pilot the course has been rolled out nationally by one leading children’s homes provider. We’re now offering individual registered managers and responsible individuals the opportunity to enrol.

the course

Running a children’s home requires strong, safe, empowering leaders and managers who create an ambitious vision for the young people in their care and deliver real change. Working in a context of young people who have often experienced real trauma, the registered manager provides emotional containment for the whole team, keeps the work focused on the young person’s needs and must demonstrate the progress they are making towards good outcomes for the young person, the organisation, placing agencies and the regulator.

This 9-day course, developed by senior social care leaders, equips managers with skills and self-reflection to prepare for or take them beyond the Level 5 Diploma and deliver outstanding leadership and management of homes in line with the Quality Standards and Children’s Homes Regulations.

When we began, I never imagined the programme would capture people’s imagination so much. I’ve had fantastic feedback all the way through and it leaves me optimistic for our future with great leadership across the organisation
