This programme is for new team leaders who manage people on the front line in Social Work and Social Care. 

The programme will develop critical insights into your management and leadership, equipping you for your challenging role.  This will be clearly demonstrated through a transfer of learning into managing practice on the front line.  



It will be delivered with some modules face to face and some virtually.  This may be subject to change due to any new restrictions.
