"Keeping Supervision Alive"

A flexible supervisor training programme aimed at qualified and experienced supervisors who wish to further develop and enhance their reflective, competent practice.
The training will consist of attendance at a choice of workshops and one to one Consultative Training Supervision sessions (“supervision of supervision”). This format is designed to allow supervisors to fit the training around their current commitments and also to tailor the training to their own individual CPD needs. These two components of the training will equal 20 hours CPD, which can be completed within a time frame to suit individuals; usually between 6 and 12 months.

Those completing these 20 hours, along with successful submission of the formal assessments and the required number of supervision practice hours will be awarded the PCW Diploma in Supervision.
