safeguarding supervision

Pink circle with click to book text

This course helps structure and approach supervision using an established supervision model to empower staff and focus on the experience and progress of young people.

Designed by highly experienced senior managers, the course addresses key dilemmas in balancing the needs of the organisation, the employee and the young people to create a different kind of conversation which both supervisees and supervisors find effective.

the course

Our supervision course now runs as four online half-day sessions or can be delivered in two days at your venue. It aims to equip supervisors with the skills and confidence to support and challenge workers to better understand risk and the quality of work being undertaken with children and families.

Supervisors will:

  • understand the principles behind supervision models
  • recognise and apply reflective supervision
  • undertake dynamic risk assessment during supervision
  • Create clear, focused and reviewable plans and actions

It was a great 2 days not only with the training but it also help me understand where the senior team are which was an unexpected positive.
