The management of a care service or facility can be an extremely challenging and complex task, and only a person with particular abilities and advanced levels of training will be able to do it.
If you plan to advance in your career to the management level, you need to start looking at your training options. The right training can equip you with the skills and knowledge to get a management role and excel in it.
The best option for those responsible for managing a care service is an NVQ Leadership and Management in Care Services (LMC) qualification. This training course is specially designed for managers and deputy managers and covers all kinds of care services. This includes care services for people with mental health problems, learning disabilities and older people.
