This framework has been designed to provide the social care sector with higher level skilled workers and to support succession planning and progression for leaders and managers within the sector. It offers progression to experienced staff to obtain the professionally required qualification for management and leadership in social care.
In Wales, managers of residential care homes for children and adults are required to register with Care Council for Wales and from 2013 managers of services providing services will also have to register. This is a qualification based register and this framework provides the qualifications required to achieve this status. It offers progression from the Advanced Practitioner Frameworks.
There are a number of pathways:
- Management Adult Services
- Management of Residential Services for Adults
- Management Child and Young People’s services
- Management Residential Services for Children and Young People.
