First Steps in Management is an interactive resource. It supports social care managers who are new in post. Find out more about the resource.

The resource covers three key elements of leadership and management:

  • managing yourself
  • leading and managing a team
  • leading and managing a service.

It has practical guidance, points for reflection and additional resources. It supports managers to develop as leaders in care. It works beside the Code of Professional Practice for Social Care and The social care manager - practice guidance.

Some of the links in the resource are from external sources. We’ll check links remain current. However, if you have problems with an organisation’s links please report issues directly to them.
