This is an article written following a presentation given at a national conference on the ‘Progression and Development in the Role of Support Workers’ in November 2012. Within this article, the author will highlight the important leadership role that support workers can and need to embrace.

The article is aimed at three groups: first and most important, support workers themselves; second, managers; and third, educationalists in charge of developing and delivering both in-house and external training courses.

Two key areas will be discussed where leadership by support workers is vital: quality and the management of change. The article will finish by looking at how support workers can be supported and developed within this often new role by managers and educationalists.
