Frontline Practice Leadership - why it’s important and how to do it
Professor Christine Bigby and Dr Lincoln Humphreys, Living with Disability Research Centre, La Trobe University.
This seminar will launch a new online training resource about Frontline Practice Leadership. The resource is designed for frontline supervisors, team leaders, and experienced support workers in disability support services. Strong Frontline Practice Leaders provide skilled guidance to direct support workers, as well as playing an educational and developmental role. First conceptualised by Mansell and colleagues in 1994, there is now significant evidence linking the strength of Frontline Practice Leadership with the quality of shared supported accommodation services and its fundamental importance to staff use of good Active Support.
The first part of this seminar will review the evidence and significance of Frontline Practice Leadership to the quality of direct support. The second part will preview the Frontline Practice Leadership Training Resource. It will introduce some of the content and videos that demonstrate how to do Frontline Practice Leadership.
The new Frontline Practice Leadership Training Resource is available online and free to use. It can be used for in house training, individual study or in team discussion. This resource was developed from research by the Living with Disability Research Centre at La Trobe University, funded by the National Disability Insurance Scheme Quality and Safeguarding Commission, and filmed with the support of Unisson Disability Services.
