Once you join a leadership programme, you will receive details to join each module before the session starts. You will also be given access to your own leadership dashboard on our website to download your programme resources and access the course webinar links.
The Skills for Care management training courses don’t have an associated level. They are for anyone who would like to develop their leadership skills.

Currently we deliver all of our courses virtually. However, for large organisations with training requirements for multiple staff, we can deliver our leadership programmes on-site.

If you miss a module, you will need to pay to take that individual module again. We don’t offer refunds for any places booked on programmes or modules.

If you’re unable to attend the programme you have booked, we will offer an alternative programme to join.

No, it’s best practice to have completed the Lead to Succeed programme but it’s not a requirement.

You can complete both Well Led and Lead to Succeed claim back funding for both once they are completed.

Once the programme has been completed and you have your certificate, you can claim funding back directly from Skills for Care or through an Employer Led Partnership. You must be Adult Social Care Workforce Data Set (ASCWDS) compliant in order to claim funding.

Our team can support you in doing this through one of our recommended Employer Led Partnerships.

Our Learning programmes don’t require a Unique Learner Number (ULN) to claim back funding.
