Course overview

Lead to Succeed is one of Skills for Care's highly acclaimed Leadership Programmes. Lead to Succeed aims to give (aspiring) leaders in the Health and Social Care sector a strong basis of knowledge and skills that enable them to develop their leadership and management potential.

Who is Lead to Succeed for?

Lead to Succeed is ideal for people who are looking to take up leadership and management roles and who wish to build their leadership capability.

The programme is primarily aimed at aspiring managers, but also at new managers, aspiring managers and existing managers who want to refresh their knowledge of leading and managing in CQC-registered, or non CQC-registered adult social care services.

How does it work?

The course consists of five training days, which we usually deliver over a period of five (occasionally six) weeks. The benefit of spreading the course out over a number of weeks is that participants get the opportunity to practice their learned skills in their day-to-day role, and discuss their experiences with the group during the next session.

Each training day focuses on a different element of leadership, and aims to teach learners successful behaviours and practical strategies that will support them in their role as leaders or managers.

The programme is highly interactive; there is a strong focus on peer support, reflective practice, and discussion of practical examples that participants may encounter in their day-to-day roles.
