The South Yorkshire Teaching Partnership has developed a clear CPD pathway to support the development of our managers and leaders. This pathway forms part of our Advanced Practitioner Framework for practitioners in children’s and adults services, and includes:
- A 30 credit module ‘Introduction to Leadership and Mentoring
- A Post-Graduate Certificate in Leadership and Management, which is delivered by the University of Sheffield’s School of Management
- The Assessed and Supported Year for New and Aspiring Managers (ASYAM) – a pilot programme to support new and aspiring managers through their journey into frontline operational management which will be delivered from March 2018, and will combine bespoke, targeted CPD provision along with work-based mentoring and support, in order to develop a clear, well-supported career pathway into management for our social workers.
