Why study at Surrey?
The programme has been designed to be flexible and responsive to the needs of professionals, linking theory with practice in a way that is relevant and sensitive to their varied work contexts. A major strength of the programme is the mix of professional backgrounds of trainee supervisors and consultants, which stimulates discussion across disciplines and so helps to contribute to a more varied understanding of the applicability of theoretical models to different contexts.
Supervision and Consultation practice:
It is essential that, during the training, you are in a position to provide ongoing supervision and consultation within your workplace. You will also need to be able to present that practice within different teaching contexts on the programme and receive advice and feedback on your practice from other trainees and staff.
Your practice during the Supervision and Consultation Practice module will be overseen via feedback forms, small group consultation, audio/video review and live observation.
