This book was well written and in a voice that was easy to digest for young people who would be undertaking roles in the social care area.
It thoroughly covered many of the professional issues that may present themselves to a young person starting out in the area and I will be recommending it to my students as a book to buy

This is an excellent book for students studying my work-based leadership and management in health and social care course. The book introduces students to the underpinning principles and their application in a practice situation. Students can apply the information to any health or social care context.

A good supplementary resource for Health Visiting and School Nursing students who need to examine their leadership and supervisory roles. I thought the reflection points and activities where useful in order to consolidate what they had read within the chapter.

This book is useful for my students superficially for the first 2 chapters as they are studying leadership within the early years setting but is too specific for their learning outcomes. It is a worthy addition to social work students but other books have been more useful up to time of feedback.

This book would suit learners wishing to pursue leadership and management roles in health and social care. The text is easy to read and a useful reference for modules based on personal, professional development and leadership.
