Supervision and Continuing Professional Development

We see supervision as an essential element of programme delivery and organisational development. Our CEO and Programme Manager attend for regular Organisational Supervision to ensure that they are supported in reflective practice which enables them to work to maximum effect in creatively and efficiently running the organisation and its programmes. All of our facilitators also attend regular supervision and continuing professional development training to support them in delivering our programmes to the highest standards, in reflecting on and learning from their own practice and that of their cofacilitators, and in ensuring that the needs of the service user remain central to everything we do.
