One of the most common comments we hear when working with staff on support and supervision is that it has become very task focused. This course looks to even out this imbalance.
This course is designed to encourage lots of discussion, sharing of ideas and learning from each other as well as direct input from the trainer. There will be a number of small group activities (yes we can have breakout groups online), various practice sessions and time for reflection and action planning will be built in to the course. We also make sure that you have enough comfort breaks for the top up of coffee etc.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
- Describe the aims, key functions and potential benefits of effective support and supervision
- Negotiating and using support and supervision contracting which provide robust structure to this key organisational encounter.
- Give effective feedback
- Learn and practice a simple structure to encourage and support staff to reflect on their work practice
- Use a model to support staff reach their potential is any area of their work
- Provide significant underpinning theoretical frameworks and tools that create effective supervision.
