To provide participants with a learning environment which offers:
- a sound theoretical understanding of different models of supervision and the supervisory process
- the opportunity to practice and develop their supervisory skills
- the opportunity to integrate theory and skills into their own individual supervisory style
- the opportunity to reflect on their development with other experienced practitioners
- the opportunity to develop their understanding of the ethical and professional responsibilities of providing supervision in different contexts through discussion and dialogue with other experienced practitioners
- the opportunity to gain experience of individual and group supervision within and out with the context of the programme.
The programme is designed to be delivered either in-person or online. We are planning to deliver the programme in-person at our new training centre in Uddingston, however, we can easily deliver the programme online if Covid restrictions are imposed. The programme is delivered over six months, consisting of seven modules delivered over eleven days. In addition to attendance on the programme students will be expected to arrange and required to participate in five peer group supervision meetings out with the training schedule.

Full course attendance and completion of the course assignments will lead to the achievement of a Persona Certificate in Clinical Supervision.
The course expects participants to be able to draw on their own experience of supervised clinical practice and therefore it is important that individuals feel sufficiently competent and grounded in their orientation as a practitioner in order to gain maximum learning and development from the programme. With this in mind, applicants will have a minimum 3 years of practice. This can include the clinical practice gained during your training to become a practitioner in a helping profession with at least an additional 200 hours of supervised practice gained post qualification. Applicants will also be members of a Professional Association, with relevant indemnity insurance.
If you are interested in the programme, please complete the Application Form and forward it to the Persona office, along with the name of someone who knows you in a professional capacity (ideally your supervisor) and is willing to provide a reference. There is no formal interview process, however, the course tutors may contact applicants if any questions arise from the application form.
Closing date for applications is Monday January 31st 2022
Course Fees: £ 1200.00. (This includes a deposit of £100.00 to secure a place on the programme)
