Each group comprises of 18 care home managers/ deputies who, over a 9 month period, are guided and supported by professional coaches and facilitators to advance their skills, engage with evidence-based, relationship-centered practice and resolve the complex everyday issues that impact upon the quality of their service.
The programme begins with a three day introductory workshop followed by a series of monthly half-day action learning meetings. Action learning involves experiential learning through action.
It recognises that individuals learn best when they learn with and from each other, by working on real problems and reflecting on their own experiences.
The sessions are confidential to allow people to feel able to be honest and frank. The learning, with the managers’ permission, will be shared more widely to enable community and statutory services to understand how they can better support care homes deliver quality of life. In this regard, managers become part of a wider movement for social change.
There is no assessment. You will receive a certificate of learning from City, University of London’s My Home Life England Programme
