The Skills for Care existing registered manager networks are extremely popular and there are now over 150 local networks set up across England. The organisation knows the benefits these networks provide to managers, so they are setting up a new network specifically for deputy managers, team leaders and assistant managers.
Each network meeting will be virtual and up to 2 hours long. It will be facilitated by a Skills for Care Locality Manager and as well as networking will focus on themes including wellbeing and resilience, self-confidence and personal effectiveness.
The networks will be a supportive opportunity for deputies to meet the challenges they face in their day-to-day work, provide the opportunity to build supportive connections and a peer support network and facilitate the sharing of best practice and learning.
