What You Study

Diploma Stage (6 two-day study blocks):

* Module One - Individual Supervision Skills & Strategies (30 credits) - On this module you will learn a range of supervision skills and theoretical models and are invited to develop your personal model of supervision practice which is congruent with your own theoretical orientation and working context.

* Module Two - Group Supervision & Supervision on an Organisational Level (30 credits) - This module will help you to adapt your personal models of supervision to work with groups and within an organisational setting. Skills, strategies and models for group supervision are explored, as well as the role of supervision in creating healthy organisational systems.

Masters Stage (5 days teaching plus monthly tutorials):
Following the successful completion of the Diploma, you will have the opportunity to research and write a 20,000 word dissertation on a topic relating to consultative supervision. You will learn about research methodology and then move on to do the dissertation itself. You will be allocated a personal supervisor to provide expert guidance, advice and support where necessary.
