Personal and professional development

Personal and professional development


This short course is about personal development in a health and social care setting. It is aimed at practitioners who want to take steps to become a manager, and those who want to develop in their current role. Care settings can be transformed by workers who commit themselves to being the best they can be, and effective management. Learn about what makes someone a good manager, how to become one if this is your ambition, and other career paths open to care workers.


Learning outcomes


  • You will consider the importance of personal development and how staff acquiring new skills and knowledge can improve a care setting
  • You will understand the reasons why someone would want to become a care manager and some of the pressures and responsibilities new managers face
  • You will be directed to best practice advice and guidance on the career paths open to them; information on qualifications and training will also be provided


Advantages of this course


  • Some people join health and social care because they know it’s what they want and some fall into it and fin they like it. Either way, it’s too demanding and important a job not to give the future careful thought. This course will ask you to consider what you want from your current role, your personal development, whether you want to be a manager, and how far you want to go and the qualifications and training you will need to get there.
  • Explore the skills and knowledge you need to be a good manager, the responsibilities of care managers, and often, the life and death decisions they have to make. It may help you make up your mind about whether to pursue a career in management and will also give you an insight into what it’s like for your manager at work.
  • Website and video resources are utilised to explore personal development in more detail
  • There is also suggested extended reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge
