    Programme Description

    The practice of regular supervision for those working in the caring and social service professions has become essential for wellbeing and firm ethical and professional foundations. This innovative MA in Supervisory Practice provides practical training in core supervisory skills, coupled with the opportunity to work under supervision with supervisees. Particular attention is paid to growth in the skills necessary for developing and setting supervisory contracts in which the key elements of effective supervision are identified, for running effective supervisory sessions, and for supervision report writing. Participants will develop grounded criteria with which to critically practice supervision in a range of spiritual, pastoral, and caring profession context.
    Characteristic of skills training will be the creation of simulated experiences of ethical and trans-cultural issues to enable participants to become skilled in the formulation of an ethical code of action, in the implementation of ethical decisions, and in the management of ethical uncertainty. Skills training will be enriched by the participants´ personal experience of conducting ten sessions of supervised supervision and by the critical review of both in assignments and supervisor reports. Most importantly, as part of developing an effective professional style of supervision, participants are required to develop a critical awareness of adult education and learner-centred theories.
