Abstract

The need for effective management and leadership in social work services is paramount. The demands placed on social work managers to deliver are significant, particularly so for those new to the role. However, the challenges involved in supporting workers, particularly those new to the profession, to learn and develop such skills has never been greater. This chapter sets out what newly qualified social workers can expect from leaders and managers in terms of induction, supervision (including supportive, managerial and developmental functions), the management of motivation and stress, and continuous professional development.
