Course Description

The quality of supervision can be the key determining factor between good and bad practice and between good and excellent practice. On the other hand, however, poor supervision can create ill-feeling, demotivate people and prove highly problematic in a number of ways. When done properly, supervision can be empowering and enriching and help supervisees to fulfil their potential and achieve optimal results.

Unfortunately, much supervisory practice is based largely if not exclusively on experiences of having been supervised. In this way, bad habits and ineffective methods can be passed from one generation of supervisors to the next, to the detriment of all concerned. This course seeks to break that cycle by offering a firm foundation of understanding of what makes for good practice and clearly establishing the vitally important role of supervision.

It covers four different elements of supervision and, in doing so, warns against the common danger of overemphasizing one element at the expense of the others.

Dr Neil Thompson has run literally hundreds of courses on best practice in supervision over many years. In this course, he makes good use of that experience and expertise to provide a clear and helpful basis of understanding that can contribute to significantly higher standards of supervisory practice.
