Two Nurse Plus team members have successfully completed the brand new Well-Led programme from the nationwide academy, Skills for Care.
Nurse Plus’ Branch Managers Kieron Bobby from Maidstone and Erica Quinell from Folkestone were amongst the first to complete the course and had the opportunity to learn ways to improve their leadership skills, share good practice and identify new ways to enhance and lead their teams.
The course focuses on expanding the skills of managers of adult social care services working in the private, public or third sectors and is made up of a series of practical workshops designed to teach participants how to deliver high quality, person-centred care.
Kieron commented: “The Well-Led programme has significantly extended my ability to put trust into my team and improve their commitment to the job.
“I learned that as a manager, the difficult conversations that I have so often wanted to avoid can actually turn into a leadership opportunity for both myself and my colleagues.”
Denise Coates, head of training at Nurse Plus, said: “We strongly invest in training here at Nurse Plus and the Well-Led course has given both Kieron and Erica the opportunity to learn about the most effective leadership processes needed for social care teams.”
The Well-Led programme offers a package of support and development over a three-month period, which includes interactive workshops, networking opportunities, access to Skills for Care’s resources and a certificate of completion.
