If you are a workplace supervisor or a new/emerging leader in the community services sector, and are looking for ways to provide effective and practical for you team, then this is the course for you. This course has been created through a relational lens which means we value relationship and connection first. Supervision is crucial to the wellbeing and functioning of both individual and organisations working within the community services sector. Whilst hierarchical and managerial models of supervision dominate supervision related research and literature, broader and more holistic models are more effectively applied in the context of community services work.

We will explore these models as well as offer the opportunity to practice the skills required to effectively plan, establish and conduct supervision will provide you with a strong theoretical framework that will be directly linked to practice.
