Leadership has been identified as a major gap in the social care
workforce by a proposed social care workforce plan.
The five-year strategy was put out to consultation by training
body Topss England earlier this month.
A spokesperson for Topss said there was awareness that
“without leadership, you are not going to succeed in other
parts of the sector”.
Meanwhile, the Social Care Institute for Excellence is to
announce next month a leadership in social care programme that will
mirror similar work in the NHS and education.
• Consultation from www.topss england.net. Deadline 1 April
