A bi-annual event open to all Northern Ireland Social Care Managers, the autumn events covered a range of issues and latest developments, aimed at supporting social care managers in their roles and improving the level of care delivered across the sector.
Key highlights from the recent events included the launch of the Social Care Managers’ Induction Programme – detailing how managers can support social care colleagues, enhance the provision of care and build confidence among employees.
An informative presentation was also given on the new Social Care Council Learning Zone and Adult Care Toolkit, which provides free online learning tools and guides to support career progression for the social care workforce.
Delegates also received a presentation from the RQIA on ‘Learning from Complaints’, got an update about the Social Care Council’s Revised Standards of Acceptance Policies and Referral Thresholds and heard from Positive Futures on how to manage capacity.
Speaking at the events, interim Chief Executive, Patricia Higgins said: “The Social Care Council has an important role to play in supporting the social care sector by sharing innovation and good practice. I am delighted to see so many social care managers and their colleagues attending these important events and hearing directly from the Council, providers and other statutory organisations on a wide range of important topics and innovative practice”.
