Skills for Care

In this section

This resource is designed for leaders and managers to use with groups of workers to discuss:

  • what ‘everyday leadership’ is
  • why leadership skills in frontline workers are so important 
  • how they can improve these skills.

We’d recommend that each film and topic are covered in separate sessions, for example in team meetings for groups or during 1-1 supervisions with individual workers. Each activity is expected to take around 15 minutes.
