Common Induction Standards
The resources and tools on this page will support you to attract and retain people with the right values for working in your service. The having the right team enables you to maintain quality standards and enhances your reputation as a care provider and an employer.
Manager Induction Standards
The Skills for Care adult social care Manager Induction Standards (MIS) were launched in 2008 and have been widely used in a great variety of ways. However, times are changing rapidly in social care and it is important that these standards remain fit for purpose. The launch of the new Qualifications and Credit Framework has been just one development in recent years in learning and development in social care.
In addition we are seeing a significant change in the way social care services are provided with far greater emphasis on direct payments and person-centred support, or relationship-centred care.
Common Induction Standards Guidance for New Workers
Any new work role brings with it new things to learn. The Skills for Care Common Induction Standards set out the first things you need to know for your work in providing care or support to people, whatever their needs may be.
Induction is the first step along a pathway that will continue all through your career in the social care sector. This guide will explain what induction is and how it can set you on track for giving high quality care or support, and getting recognition for the work you do.
