Management Development Programme (MDP)
The Management Development Programme aimed to build knowledge, skills and behaviours in frontline managers of young peoples services from the public, independent and voluntary sectors. It formed part of the Young People's Workforce Reform Programme which ran from 2008-2011.
In 2009 the programme was mapped against the LMI leadership and management standards and was formally recognised by both the Chartered Institute of Management and De Montfort University at level 6. Participants could choose to progress to receive a formal award on the satisfactory completion of written assignments.
What is it?
Three face to face modules, 10 personal study units and a number of supporting documents make up the Management Development Programme.
How can I use it?
The resources are editable so you can add in and remove content to suit your delivery model. Although created as part of the Young Peoples Workforce Reform programme the resources are suitable for a wide range of managers. The Management Development Programme resources contain references to and policy information about 'Integrated Youth Support Services'.
