Are you a health or care professional thinking about a change of career? Moving your skills across to social care consultancy could be the right next move for you. If you’re not sure what social care consultancy involves, or how to go about building your own business as an independent consultant, our Care Consultancy Masterclass is for you! Find out more about what it covers and how you can book your place at the conference in April.
What is the Care Consultancy Masterclass?
The Care Consultancy Masterclass is the perfect starting point for any health or care professional looking to grow a career as a social care consultant. Whether you have a background in nursing, health administration or were part of a care home management team, social care consultancy offers the chance to work holistically with care homes across the country, helping them to improve their service, systems and commercials.
The two-day, limited spaces intensive workshop has been specially designed to provide attendees with the core skills and training you need to get started in the sector, as well as the opportunity to begin working alongside established social care consultancy companies.
Held in partnership between Tony Thiru, Director of Fulcrum Care, and Tim Dallinger, Director of Social Care Consultants, the training provides a complete guide to setting up as a professional social care consultant, including:
- Personal management: Setting and improving outcomes, the basics to being a good consultant, marketing your own business and how to grow your career.
- Working with care home clients: Knowing how to conduct mock inspections and service audits properly, understanding CQC regulation changes and how to implement new strategies.
- Ongoing sector support: Discussion with leading social care consultants, networking with likeminded individuals and an invitation to join the Care Consultants Forum.
Who is the Care Consultancy Masterclass for?
To be a successful social care consultant requires a strong understanding of the many challenges that care homes face, as well as the requirements that need to be met to uphold good ratings with the CQC. This includes knowing how to approach and build strong relationships with care home management teams (who can be apprehensive of change), as well as effective communication of new operational strategies in an accessible manner. That is why having a foundation of experience from within the health and care sectors is highly recommended; potential professionals who are well qualified to make the move to social care consultancy include:
- Senior care assistant
- Nursing administrator
- Care home manager
- Nursing home manager
- Senior care worker
- Care coordinator
- Senior support worker
Many health or care professionals are already familiar with the social care sector, but having an understanding of the unique needs and limitations that care homes have can help you define better approaches with their management teams.
