Overview
 

Prior study is not a prerequisite - you just need a passion for the subject matter!

This fascinating study pack focuses on the knowledge and techniques you will need to become an effective manager within the Care Industry. It also helps you to define your own goals and aspirations, and how to communicate them in order to engage and enthuse others so that they too want the same or similar outcomes. This is what leadership is all about, whether at a team or organisational level, and you will learn it here!

MATERIALS
 

One of the key benefits of studying with My Distance Learning College is that, unlike other distance learning providers, we deliver the entire package of learning materials in a single dispatch.

This enables our students to get a real feel for the overall structure and content of the study pack, and chart their progress much more effectively. The modular method of delivery favoured by other providers fragments the learning process and actively prevents students from moving faster through sections they are more confident with, or taking more time over the deeper concepts that require more thought and comprehension.

REQUIREMENTS
 

A reasonable level of literacy is required, but there are no entry restrictions.

You just need a keen interest in the subject, and will ideally have studied the subject or ancillary disciplines at a lower level if you want to progress quickly.

Non-Regulated Qualification Endorsed by Focus Awards under the FQP Scheme
 

This is a non-regulated qualification endorsed by Focus Awards under their Focus on Quality Provision (FQP) Scheme.

The FQP scheme is designed to give endorsement to non-regulated qualifications in a wide range of subjects. On successful completion you will receive a Focus Awards Certificate of Achievement and a Diploma from My Distance Learning College.

Although the materials are comprehensive and informative, we do expect you to carry out your own investigations. After all, if you are not prepared to do your own research, you should be asking yourself if this is the right subject choice for you!

How do I send in my work?
 

You email your assignments one at a time for marking. This enables your tutor to properly assess the standard and style of your work for each section, and give you feedback which will be used on your next assignment; a process of continuous improvement. On obtaining feedback and comment you will either move on to the next assignment or review and rework the one you submitted.

If I fail an assignment can I retake it?

What is leadership and management in care?

Leadership and management in care is the responsibility and managing of staff such as care assistants. Management in care can take place in the community or in a care home.

Why did you decide to work in management in care?

I had worked in the same care home for five years. I thoroughly enjoyed my job working with elderly people. I had already taken my NVQ level 2 in Caring and within the five years of working in the care home I had already had a promotion to supervisor of a small group of other care assistants.

A management position had come open within the care home and it was my own manager that routed for me to apply for the position as she said I had natural leadership skills. I applied for the job on the basis I was willing to take my management training. I luckily got the position and was promoted to manager.

What does a manager in care do on a day to day basis?

As a manager in a care home you would be responsible for how the care home is run on a day to day basis. This would include delegation of responsibility and duties to different members of staff and ensuring they were completing tasks as they should be. It would also involve working with the residents within the home providing the right information and advice to them as well as their families, promoting the residents right and responsibilities and encouraging those living in the home to join in activities.

What are the entry requirements to work in management in care?

You would need specific knowledge, skills and experience in order to become a manager within a care home. You may be offered a mangers position due to promotion or if you have the relevant qualification such as Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health and Social Care and Children and Young People's Services.

What can I expect to earn as a manager in a care home?

Starting salaries can be between £20,000 - £30,000 a year.

Experience managers can earn up to £45,000 a year.
