Individuals excelling in team leader, deputy manager or similar roles are well-placed to progress into a registered manager role.

We recommend this to employers to develop future registered managers. When to do it: Before becoming a registered manager, What will you learn: Understanding effective practice in leadership and management and Why is it important?

It seems that some companies are hesitant to take on new managers, but Cascade is different. They’ve really supported the development of new managers and I think this benefits the service by both bringing fresh eyes into the position but also experience from other roles. It’s great to find an organisation that trusts you like my company does. I initially signed up to a learning provider who offered the level 5 diploma, but it was largely being delivered by eLearning and emails. For me, this wasn’t the way I learn effectively so we swapped to a company that covered the level 5 diploma via a face-to-face workshop. By choosing a learning style that was right for me, it has completely transformed the situation.
