The programme includes two two-day residentials held on Wednesday 21 to Thursday 22 October 2015 and Wednesday 25 to Thursday 26 November 2015. Each residential begins at 10.30am on the first day and finishes at 4pm on the second.
What previous participants say…
“…comprehensive course that offered a wonderful grounding and structure for the practice of supervision.”
“…the training was intense though the variety of activities and the imaginative approaches to supervision offered by the trainers kept my interest.”
“…the course incorporated theory and practical experience in a highly effective way.”
“…the mixture of input and skills practice made this an effective learning experience for me.”
Some of the areas to be covered are:
- models of supervision
- establishing a working alliance and reviewing the supervisory process
- skills of supervision
- attending to the context in which the supervision takes place
Places are limited to 15 to facilitate an adult learning environment that blends theory and practical skills development. Participants need to have experience of being in supervision as well as supervising others. Places are offered on completion of an application process.
This course meets the current training requirements for general accreditation with APSE (Association of Pastoral Supervisors and Educators).
