Leadership app launched
Caring Times, June 2014
The National Skills Academy for Social Care has developed a new mobile ‘app’ for social care leaders to engage with the Leadership Qualities Framework (LQF) wherever they are.
The app, which is now available on iTunes and Android, was developed in consultation with Skills Academy members. It provides links to an abridged version of the LQF, so that users can refer to each of the seven Dimensions, in any order they choose, as well as access to the full LQF. The app will be available to download from iTunes and the Android Market from 7 May 2014.
Welcoming the launch of the app, Debbie Sorkin, Chief Executive of the National Skills Academy, said:
“Social care needs to move with the times, and we are conscious that more and more of the workforce are interested in learning more about mobile technology.
“This new app will allow social care leaders that need it quick access to the LQF as they prepare for meetings, inductions, supervisions and appraisals.”
“We look forward to receiving feedback on the app as it is rolled, out, which will inform development of the next phase.”
- The LQF App can be downloaded via the Skills Academy’s website, where more information can also be found about the app, at:www.nsasocialcare.co.uk/about-us/leadership-qualities-framework/app
