AASWs Advanced Supervision Learning Program was created in direct response to the recommendations from recent Coronial reports, Royal Commission reports and State Ombudsman reports, which highlighted the need for advanced supervision for frontline social workers and the lack of quality supervision training and support.

It is a 6-week evidence based Advanced Supervision Learning Program designed with a blended learning approach utilising self-paced eLearning, online collaborative workshops, facilitator led Masterclasses and Coaching Circles.

It is tailored to the family violence sector and facilitated by an expert with 16 years of family violence experience.

Kate Fraser, our Manager for Education and Training, speaks about the program in this short video:
