Skills for Care is Championing Registered Managers in March

Throughout March Skills for Care is focusing on championing registered managers with their latest campaign.

Running across their website, social media, and other communications channels the campaign will be celebrating and supporting registered managers.

Skills for Care data reveals that turnover rates among staff are lower when an experienced registered manager is in post, and services with a stable registered manager in place also have higher Care Quality Commission (CQC) scores.

The Championing Registered Managers campaign will acknowledge the important role of registered managers, signpost to the wide range of support and resources which Skills for Care has available for registered managers, and provide tailored information on key issues which registered managers are looking for support with right now.

This includes changes to CQC assessments as well as a broader look at managing change and succession planning. With 32% of registered managers reaching retirement age in the next 15 years, succession planning is vital in sustaining the workforce of the future.

The campaign will include blogs and real life insights on these topics from registered managers and other social care experts.

Georgina Turner, Director of Engagement, Skills for Care says:

Registered managers really are at the heart of high-quality care. We know from our close connections across England with registered managers just how rewarding and complex their job can be, and that’s why we offer a wide range of support for registered managers across all elements of their role. We’re excited to launch this campaign focused on highlighting that vital role of registered managers and signposting to the support and information that we know many registered managers find incredibly useful in their roles.”
