This 12-hour 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.
