Proud to Care's Leadership & Management development pathway builds Gloucestershire's existing leadership and management development support in to a comprehensive social care bespoke pathway of learning. All components of the programme are fully funded, this is through  Gloucestershire County Council's Proud to Learn & Proud to Care initiatives, Skills for Care and Gloucestershire's Integrated Care System. 


This pathway is supported by initial e-learning to give individuals a basic understanding of management; this also ensures that individuals have the right entry knowledge before competing face to face training components of the pathway. 

Individuals should start with completing the 'Introduction to Managing People' module available of Proud to Learn's e-learning Platform
