Management Development

    Developing management skills and competencies is a key priority across NHS Scotland.

    Detailed in the tabs below you will find management development information in place within your Board. 

    National Services Scotland

    Management Development is a blended learning programme consisting of online learning and interactive workshops. We’ve split the content into online modules which you can access from the homepage on LearnPro. The online learning is also supported by face-to-face events, designed to provide you with the opportunity to explore the topics further through discussions with colleagues.

    Who is it for?

    These new development opportunities are open to anyone who is looking to develop into a management role. We would encourage all managers to engage in the programme, even if they have completed the Essential Line Programme that was previously in place for line managers. 

    How do I get started?

    Visit the LearnPro Homepage to access the online materials and resources. There is a link to the Portal at the bottom of the home page.

    Upcoming events:

    All dates can be viewed on My Board Events and will include details on how to enrol. We’re planning new events all the time so check regularly for updates.

    Any personal development should be agreed with your line manager in advance of enrolling and should be captured on your personal development plan.

    Management Matters is the exciting new standard approach to line managers' development, for managers in the eight national boards.

    Management Matters is a self-directed learning resource accessed on Turas Learn.

    The self-assessment and standard learning format, including an opportunity to come together and learn from each other, will guide managers to gain the knowledge and understanding to form effective line management performance.

    The core elements are:

    Managing self - Self-management skills are important because they help you contribute to a better work environment for yourself and your colleagues.

    Managing teams and others - Developing your interpersonal skills will improve your ability to manage your team and contribute to organisational success through improved trust, cohesion, empathy, and good will.

    Managing and leading in organisations - Your role as a manager or leader is to drive the organisation towards fulfilling it’s goals and objectives, shaping the culture through change and innovation.

    Other management development resources can be accessed from the landing page of the Leadership and Management Zone on Turas Learn.
