For managers new in post as a route towards the Skills for Care Manager Induction Standards
The Level 4 Certificate in Principles of Leadership & Management for Adult Care qualification introduces learners to adult care leadership and management, preparing learners to progress into further/higher level training such as the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership & Management for Adult Care.
The qualification covers the essential knowledge required in adult care and support, as well as management, and aligns with the Management Induction Standards, providing the knowledge and understanding to be able to move into a management role.
