Reflect, discuss, develop: the benefits of supervision

Over the course of your career, you may be expected to supervise or support colleagues and students. Alternately, you may receive supervision to develop your own professional skills and competence in a certain area.

Whether you are providing or receiving supervision, it’s important that you are able to do this safely and effectively, and in a way that enables you to meet your intended learning objectives. 

These pages outline some of the benefits and outcomes that supervision can have on your professional development and provide some top tips on how you can effectively approach supervision in your practice.

Supervision can also help you to reflect on your practice, which plays a key part in professional development and service improvement. More information about reflective practice and how supervision can support this can also be found on our reflective practice webpages here.
