New and Emerging Managers

Here are Compass Children’s Homes we are keen to keep developing our team. One such way is for residential colleagues to develop their Children’s Home related managerial skills and become Children’s Home managers of the future.

There are many training and learning stages for this but these can be most simply outlined as below:


All Compass Children’s Homes managers must be qualified with a Level 5 Diploma in leadership and management. In preparation for this we will enrol people on this qualification whilst they are a deputy home manager. In some cases where people are interested in this career path we will enrol them whilst they are working as a senior support worker. This allows for those wishing to progress to start to develop their career in this direction but also continue their learning.

Skills development

Alongside the formal qualification, Compass recognises that taking that next step in a career to lead can be a difficult one. As such we will support emerging managers through this transition with a wide range of professional coaching and skill based learning experiences and training to aid develop the confidence and skills needed to manage others.

Compass is committed to supporting colleagues to develop their career here within our Children’s Homes service and across all of our services whilst maintaining the highest standards of care for the children we care for.
