In 2019-20 the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has prioritised support for managers, their deputies and succession planning with £3 million of targeted funding available from the Workforce Development Fund (WDF).
This targeted funding will support managers and deputies to develop the skills and knowledge needed to lead high quality services. This emphasis on the targeted fund is generating significant interest from sector press.
Our development pathway for managers and deputies outlines the learning and development needed on the journey to becoming a manager and highlights where employers can receive support from the WDF. This is a useful infographic to share with your members.
