Registered Managers Learning Hubs Network

The ‘Hubs provide support to Managers across Dorset and regular attendees say that they are an extremely useful way of keeping up to date. This saves valuable time in researching the constant changes, keeps them informed about training initiatives, opportunities and funding. The ‘Hubs have evolved in to a Registered Managers Network chaired by a local Registered Manager, and we are also usually joined by the Locality Manager from Skills for Care to hear about their work and how you can become involved in this. During this next round we are delighted to be joined by a range of speakers including colleagues from Dorset CCG‘s Quality Team and Patient Participation Groups Leads to share some of the resources and support they are able to offer to assist you, particularly with clinical matters. We also hope to be joined by colleagues from the hospitals who have a lead on dementia / delirium support. Each meeting will incorporate networking time so that you can make the most of the shared the knowledge within the room, and discuss good practice with others. As part of this Spring round of meetings you are warmly invited to attend and if you’ve never been before please feel free to come along and find out what you may have been missing!  Details are: Date:               Tuesday 28th April 2020 Time:              2:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m Venue:           The Dorford Centre, Dorchester Dorset DT1 1RR Date:               Wednesday 29th April 2020 Time:              2:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Venue:            Allendale House, Wimborne Dorset BH21 1AS Date:               Friday 1st May 2020 Time:              10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Venue:   ...

New and Aspiring Managers Network

Are you a ‘new’ Registered Manager? Or are you aspiring to be a manager in the near future? Do you feel you would benefit from support amongst others who are in a similar position? Do you want to provide support to members of your team who you feel have the potential to develop their career? Since 2016 Partners in Care have been facilitating a network for newly appointed managers, or those who are aspiring to move into this role in the near future. This group supports managers in the earliest stage of their journey into management, and ensures they have a good foundation to build upon at this exciting, but often daunting, time in their career. The group is chaired by an experienced Registered Manager, and supported by a member of the Partners in Care team. We will also be joined by our Skills for Care Locality Manager and at this early spring meeting we will be focussing on Managers Induction Standard 9 1: Manage Self. Hopefully we will have chance to look at the new interactive learning modules that have been launched to support the development of managers at all levels by increasing knowledge, building confidence in the workplace and providing the opportunity to reflect on your own work. You are warmly invited to join this exciting group, or nominate the appropriate members of your team.
