Find out more about our ‘Trust and Safety in Supervision’ research, conducted by Ashridge in Spring 2016.

Supervision makes an important contribution to the professional development and quality assurance of consultants and executive coaches. It can be a key differentiator in the marketplace and is increasingly central to many formal consulting and coaching qualifications.

About the programme

This 14-month part-time programme was developed by experienced practitioners who have a combination of supervision, research, psychological and organisation development (OD) experience.

The qualification will give you the skills, credibility and confidence to offer a new service to your clients. It is designed to build your status as a senior practitioner and supervisor of coaches and consultants.

Aimed at experienced OD consultants and executive coaches, this is an opportunity to be supervised on any aspect of your work, individually and as part of a group of equally experienced coaches. You will learn how to supervise other consultants and coaches effectively.

As with all Ashridge coaching programmes, this programme takes a relational perspective. It develops your theoretical knowledge of the psychological underpinnings of supervision and your critical evaluation of supervision models and theories.

The programme is a natural follow-on from the Masters in Executive Coaching https://www.ashridge.org.uk/qualifications/masters-in-executive-coaching/ and the Masters in Organisational Change https://www.ashridge.org.uk/qualifications/masters-in-organisational-change/
It is structured around three modules. The first two are based on a series of six intensive workshops, spread across the 14 months - each lasting two days. The third is the accreditation module.

Ashridge Approach to Supervision

The Ashridge perspective on coaching and consulting supervision has been the subject of a number of articles and publications. We also run Coaching Supervision sessions which either form part of the qualification or can be purchased individually.

Ashridge sees supervision as an essential quality assurance process for coaches and consultants. It ensures that the client benefits from a professional consultant who is equipped with the insight and personal resourcefulness to make a difference.

We believe that the power and effectiveness of supervision stems from the possibility for new scrutiny and fresh perspectives.

We take a broadly relational perspective on supervision, based on personal experience of effective coaching and the themes and issues at the core of the process.

This is based on the following core principles:
‌•Human beings are deeply motivated to be in relationships with others, so part of what we (consultant and supervisor) hope to get from this relationship is to repeat our previous relational patterns and through awareness of these, create better patterns both inside and outside the coaching space
‌•All content of supervision can be seen as relational, i.e. supervisees are continually, even if subliminally, linking relationships elsewhere (real and imagined) to this one
‌•This supervisory relationship is worth constantly exploring because of the rich learning it can offer
‌•The supervisee’s experience of the supervisory relationship is worth enhancing.

Benefits to you

‌•If you run your own consulting practice, you will be benefit by:
‌•Being able to offer supervision as well as finely-tuned coaching skills to individuals and organisations
‌•Having the Ashridge accreditation quality stamp to give clients the added reassurance that you can offer high-level supervision
‌•Having more confidence in your abilities and being able to introduce new knowledge and skills in your daily work.
‌•If you work for an organisation, it will benefit from:
‌•The new practices that you can share with colleagues and/or your organisation’s clients
‌•Your supervision work - a useful differentiator for the business
‌•Added credibility thanks to your Ashridge accreditation
‌•Your increased self-awareness, knowledge and network could make you a candidate for senior level positions in the organisation.

Focusing on you as a clinical supervisor

This course caters for everyone who wants to develop themselves as a clinical supervisor – counsellors, therapists or psychotherapists. During the course, you will:
• develop the practice skills you'll need to form, maintain and end supervisory relationships
• analyse a range of supervisory models and educational theory
• develop an advanced understanding of supervisory structures and processes
• develop a critical understanding of the approaches you can use to evaluate supervision
• develop your ability to recognise and work with organisational, ethical, professional and legal influences
• reflect on and develop your supervision skills.

Online study – ideal for this reflective course

As well as all the usual benefits that you get when you study online, such as the convenience of being able to work from anywhere, the Clinical Supervision course is particularly well suited to online distance learning because it requires a great deal of reflection. So if you think of an idea, you can still discuss and post your thoughts straight away – whereas in face to face situations, the moment can be lost.

Start in September, January or May.

This innovative new course has been designed in response to the General Medical Councils (GMC 2012) policies around the selection, recognition and approval of clinical and educational supervisors in postgraduate medical education settings. It is mapped to relevant GMC Academy of Medical Educator (AoME) and Committee of Postgraduate Dental Deans and Directors (COPDEND) standards for clinical and educational supervisors. (It is anticipated that the course gain AoME recognition.)

The course has a blended learning approach, with interactive on-line learning being supported by four study days over the course of two semesters (typically running from October to June). Assessment strategies have a practical focus but are also designed to foster an informed, critical stance to key issue in Postgraduate Medical and Dental Education.

The first unit focuses on the skill sets of clinical supervisors. You will explore ways to create safe clinical learning environments and the development of your own approaches to clinical teaching. Concepts of reflective practice and communities of practice are critically examined with reference to the ways in which learning is supported in clinical environments. The second unit focuses on educational supervision and leadership. You will examine the changing landscapes of postgraduate training and how you support the development of trainees and trainers. You will analyse current approaches to assessment and appraisal and how they can be maximised to support trainee development and progression. You will also develop a differentiated approach to training, including a focus on managing poor performance.

This postgraduate certificate is being developed as a recognised entry route into our long-standing and popular MA in Medical Education.

Assessment

The assessment strategy for this course combines formative and summative elements. Assessment is an integral part of your learning experience and we provide a range of opportunities for you to develop your assessment ideas with your allocated tutor(s). We have designed the assessment strategy to allow you to experience a range of approaches to assessment and make links between your experiences as learners on this course and those of your trainees. For example, you will keep a journal where you record your reflections on course learning experiences, with these being the basis of two reflective narratives submitted for summative assessment. Each of the assessments has been designed to allow you to make strong connections between your learning on the course and your practice as a medical educator. Each unit has three assessment points, linked to the end of blocks of themed learning. The table below summarises the assessment methods used on each unit.

You will be provided with a detailed assessment brief for each task and will have access to a named tutor who can provide guidance and support. Some tasks include opportunities to rehearse assessment activities. You will be provided with written feedback on all summative assessments with guidance on how to improve your performance on similar tasks in future.

Programmes

Master of Laws by coursework

You'll take one core course—Advanced Legal Study LAWS 581 worth 10 points—and make up the rest of your 120 points from a choice of other 500-level LAWS courses. Up to 40 points can be replaced by equivalent courses from another faculty or another university.

500-level LAWS courses differ from year to year and are either taught in block format, intensive format or seminars. Look at the course timetable to see when the intensive and block courses are offered. The seminar courses are mainly led by you and the other students who will prepare papers in advance.

Internship

International students can also choose to do a 20-point one-trimester internship. You'll work with a community, government or private sector organisation under the joint supervision of a Faculty member and an outside professional. Assessment is based on the work you produce, a journal and your performance at fortnightly seminars.

Master of Laws by dissertation and coursework

You'll take LAWS 581 Advanced Legal Study (10 points), a further 20 points from the Master of Laws course-selection and LAWS 592, a 90-point dissertation of 35,000 words.

The research portfolio consists of two courses that include two research papers of 12,000 words each on related topics. You'll also complete a 2,500-word linking paper to establish and justify your research, as well as a further 20 points from Master of Laws courses.

Flexible study

Designed to be flexible, the Master of Laws offers courses that are taught in different formats. Some courses meet weekly, others are taught in a more compact format.

Block courses are taught in a concentrated manner over a one-to-two week period, and intensive courses are broken into chunks of eight to twelve hours. They are often taught over two-to-three consecutive evenings or in Friday afternoon and Saturday sessions, with a break of two-to-three weeks between sessions.

Workload and duration

The Master of Laws can be completed in one year of full-time study, or in up to three years part time.

If you are studying full time, you can expect a workload of 40–45 hours a week for much of the year. Part-time students doing two courses per trimester will need to do around 20–23 hours of work a week. Make sure you take this into account if you are working.

You can estimate your workload by adding up the number of points you'll be doing. One point is roughly equal to 10–12 hours work.

Research and supervision

No matter how you choose to study for your Master of Laws there will be an element of research required. Take advantage of exciting research opportunities at New Zealand's leading centre of academic legal research

And if you're planning on doing a Master's by thesis, or a PhD, you'll have the opportunity to be supervised in wide range of subject areas by New Zealand's best legal scholars.
