Development programmes

We develop future leaders


If you’re ambitious to progress, we’ll support you with tailored training programmes. If you’re dedicated, we’ll help you go far

Development programmes tailored to you

Our bespoke leadership development programmes offer exciting learning opportunities where colleagues can develop the skills and knowledge required to be a successful and outstanding leader.

Each programme has been created with the purpose of supporting colleagues within their career progression, and alongside their manager's support.

Learn more about each of our programmes:

This programme has been created to equip colleagues with the behaviours and skills to progress into a Deputy Manager role. Candidates will complete behavioural workshops, core skills workshops and a leadership project reflecting the actions they've taken to implement their learnings and create a positive impact within a care home.

They can also optionally complete a Level 3 Team Leader Supervisor qualification.

Colleagues will develop in their journeys to becoming home managers in this programme. To become part of a FHM cohort, colleagues are nominated and go through a talent review process with their Regional Director to assess their development potential.

The programme involves behavioural workshops around recruiting, retaining and developing a great team; core skills workshops; completion of a Level 5 Leadership in Health and Social Care qualification and a final review where candidates demonstrate what they've learned.

The Future Operational Support Manager and Regional Director programme is a tailored two-day workshop (delivered twice a year per cohort) accompanied by existing Regional Director mentors to support colleagues with their career journey.

The programme involves bespoke behavioural workshops tailored to the needs of the group, continual reflection and mentoring and an option to complete a Level 5 Operational Developmental Manager qualification.

Here’s what some recent participants of our development programmes had to say.

I came away energised and felt that I could take away strategies to use. I also felt the team were exceptional and we were able to share in a protected space.

The sessions help us learn strategies to influence teams rather than manage them and prepare us to be leaders of future.

The course gave me the confidence and belief to be able to tackle my development area around the commercial side of the business.
