4 Manager Induction Standards - why did we refresh the standards?
Qualifications and Credit Framework New leadership diploma Personalisation Changes in service delivery Person centred practice – even more central Needed to support the needs of a new workforce and new ways of working New developments in the sector suggested that the Manager Induction Standards needed to be refreshed. New MIS need to take into account the following developments Qualifications and Credit Framework – whole new way of looking at qualifications New leadership diploma – level 5 diploma within QCF Personalisation – new approach to delivery of all social care including the rise of direct employers and their personal assistants Needs to reflect the needs of new workforce – new MIS needs to reflect this changing workforce and to be able to be useful to either direct employers themselves or to managers they may employ who might be managing a group of staff / Personal assistants. Changes in service delivery –the way in which services are delivered is constantly changing as organisations need to adapt to economic pressures and the changing landscape. Organisations need to be much more flexible in their delivery to meet a larger number of people making individual choices about the care they want. Person centred practice – even more central to all social care National Skills Academy

6 Manager Induction Standards ‘additional’ standards
Personal development Change and growth Managing business Ensuring quality Personal development – responsibility for own and those of others for whom you are responsible Change and growth –adapting to sector needs/ facilitating change of delivery Managing business - looking at the service provision as part of a ‘whole business’ approach Ensuring quality –looking at quality, how to measure and assess, involving people who use services in quality assessment and improvement. – A number of people are surprised that this is only an optional standard as surely quality is everyone's business. We agree with this but this standard is about someone who takes responsibility for managing the quality mechanisms and not all mangers in social care have this responsibility.
