Careship for Strategic leaders

Careship is a unique framework designed to develop the leadership ability of everyone who works in social care. While other organisations tell people WHAT they need to do, Careship will give you guidance on HOW you should do it.

Strategic Leaders 1

Strategic Leaders are senior leaders and directors. You are responsible for establishing the culture and standards across your entire organisation.

Your needs

Social care is the most important and rapidly growing sector in the country, so let’s work together to transform the quality of care experienced by every single service user.

Careship offers a suite of tailor-made programmes for people across the sector, from care-workers to commissioners, employers, team leaders and training providers. And, because Careship is grounded in behaviours, it follows that it’s for everyone in all levels in social care, from front-line staff and middle managers to people like you in the most senior roles.

The Benefits of Careship

The care sector is a unique place in which to work. Our focus is on people, not products, and every service user is an individual, with their own mind, moods and needs. Every day is different and personalisation requires a personal approach.

This means that while leadership is needed in the sector, you can’t simply copy and paste the behaviours that worked elsewhere. A new definition of leadership is needed, one that better captures the specific demands of the care sector: Careship.
