Formal Supervision Skills Programme Outline

The need for high quality supervision has never been more so than in the current drive to deliver quality services across various sectors.

This intensive one day course is ideal for those who already supervise the casework of others or who wish to receive training in that area.
We have designed the course to provide you with a practical overview of formal supervision along with a focus on common problems and issues that arise. We also take a look at theories of learning and management including the Kolb Learning Cycle.

The course is based on the work of Tony Morrison and will be delivered in a relaxed and safe environment through lecture, practical exercises, interaction, discussion and peer-to- peer sharing of issues and experiences.

It is essential for those already conducting formal supervision in the healthcare, social care and childcare sector.

A certificate of completion, from CMD Training Institute, will be issued to participants.
