Applications are open for Skills for Care’s Graduate Management programme

Graduates can now apply for one of the highly-sought places on Skills for Care’s 2018/19 12-month Graduate Management programme, before the closing deadline of 09 April.

Starting in October 2018, the programme has been developed in partnership with the NHS Leadership Academy, the Department of Health and Social Care and the sector’s employers who will host the graduates.

The Graduate Management programme fast-tracks graduates towards leadership roles, based on strategic and frontline experience offered by their social care host organisations that are carefully matched with the graduate. Successful graduates will gain experience in both social care and health settings, against a backdrop of integrated working across the sectors.

During the 12-month programme, graduates will have real responsibility from day one with their social care host employer and undertake a secondment within a health-based setting and associated research project. They will also take part in ongoing leadership development, coaching, business training and management qualifications that will support their progression to become influential leaders.

Who can apply?

This is an extremely competitive and demanding programme open to graduates from any degree discipline. However, they must:

  • have graduated in the last seven years
  • have/will have at least a 2:2 degree by September 2018
  • have the right values and ambitions for a career in care.

 Graduates can find out more about the Graduate Management programme and apply before 09 April 2018 here.
