The National Skills Academy (NSA) for Social Care have announced a March start date for their Front-line Leaders programme.

Front-line Leaders consists of 3 modules mapped to the Skills Academy’s Leadership Qualities Framework (LQF), to the latest CQC Essential Standards, and to the Skills for Care Manager Induction Standards (MIS).

The 6 month programme uses a blended approach to learning, comprising six full workshop days and four one-hour online (virtual) classroom sessions.

Learners who successfully complete all elements of the programme will be eligible to achieve the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) Level 4 Award in Leadership qualification or a certificate from the NSA.
