Within my Job role as team leader it is my own responsibility to further my own professional development. I can do this by attending regular training courses and sessions offered. I also ensure I check and update myself with the company’s policies and procedures as well as national legislation. I regularly check the company intranet to see if any of our policies have been updated or changed updating my own knowledge so any information given to staff is current and correct. We also receive bulletins weekly via email with any changes or updates. It is also important to check national legislation for example the Health and safety at work (1992) and the management of health and safety (1999) this ensures that I and my work force are working in a safe environment. I can also access new training opportunities via my supervisions with my manager, who gives me feedback on my performance and may be able to advise about any training I could benefit from. I can also ask if I feel I would benefit and further my professional development with additional training, which would be available for me to attend. It may be necessary to access outside training for my development, such as specialised training including catheter/stoma care, nebuliser training. This I then pass down to my staff. I also am developing via Bedford College who have enabled me to access my NVQ level 5 in health and social care for adults and young people. During supervisions it gives me and my manager the opportunity to evaluate and my knowledge and develop any training requirements. It is important for my manager to assess and acknowledge where I need improvement so I can be a more effective manager to the staff I manage. Any training I have completed is documented and written records are in my personnel folder in our office. This is regularly checked and updates for any training are booked in to enable me to have the most up to date knowledge I can.
