Social services boost management skills

Coventry Social Services has made the first awards of its e-learning BTEC Certificate in Management Studies, which it implemented as part of its plan to achieve National Care Standards qualifications targets.

The programme was rolled out to 23 managers in its first year, and is now being undertaken by 65 managers.

The e-learning content that supports the BTEC Certificate is the latest release from AdVal KeyKnowledge in partnership with Edexcel.

Learners can access video-streamed case studies, the latest management thinking and self-analysis questionnaires. They are quizzed throughout the programme to reinforce the learning.

“The BTEC Certificate in Management Studies proves that soft skills can be taught well by e-learning,” said Coventry Social Services training manager, Lynn Bassett. “It has a real impact on the learner.”
