Leading Change Improving Care (LCIC) is a national development programme for new and experienced managers of adult social care services. The learning programme is grounded in the reality of social care delivery and takes a practical look at how to influence and implement the necessary changes to meet current and future challenges and service needs in health and social care. It explores how to lead and manage change within teams and organisations and provides tools and techniques to drive change and ultimately improve the quality of care delivered. LCIC enables participants to consider their own leadership styles. It focuses on the impact these have on themselves and their team, how to become a more effective leader and how to influence and motivate teams. There is a strong emphasis on mentoring and coaching and how to identify and nurture skills in other people to develop high performing teams and grow future talent. It also provides a wonderful opportunity to work with and share issues and ideas with peers within the sector.
This learning programme is exclusively available only from Skills for Care’s endorsed training providers. Silas Care Services Luton is a Skills for Care Endorsed Training Provider.
