Skills for Care’s Management Induction Standards can be used by individual employers. They offer guidance for new managers and set out what they need to know and understand. You may adapt them to suit you and your personal assistant. More information is available at www.skillsforcare.org.uk/mis.
Skills for Care is developing a guide for individual employers about how to use the standards. This will be added to the website when it is available.
There is also information in the Employing personal assistants toolkit - a useful guide. It includes employing a personal assistant, being a good employer, getting started, keeping your personal assistant and sorting out problems.
Health and safety information for employers is also available on the Skills for Care website (click here) and the Social Care Institute for Excellence website (click here). The Advice Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) also provides a range of information to help employers, as well as a helpline. Click here for more information.
