Reflective Supervision Facilitator Training for Schools (3 session course)

Event code SCH 22/187 
SCH 22/297 - 9 March, 30 March and 27 April 2022.

This course is for anyone working within a leadership role within education that wants to facilitate reflective supervision practice within schools. You will explore evidence on supervisory models, relationships and processes using the literature and participant contribution to draw out some of the issues which arise in school-based reflective supervision. There is a particular emphasis on developing a supportive and reflective atmosphere within which to think about the meaning of the supervisory task and context, as well as the material brought to and from supervision. There is an experiential component to all sessions, were participants bring material from their own work contexts for exploration.

This course is informed by the integration of theory and research and practice-based evidence on school-based reflective supervision. It aims to develop the skillset to provide informal supervision practices within schools.
