Supervision Training - Join a Review Group

Supervision is an essential component of practice as a psychologist throughout your career. It facilitates ethical, effective and reflective practice and enhances the quality of service delivery.

In order to support the provision of high quality supervision, a strong training programme needs to be available which reflects the various contexts within which psychologists work, including clinical practice, academia and business, and the diverse nature of the psychological workforce.

The society is commencing a review of the supervision training that it offers to ensure this meets the needs of psychologists and the psychological workforce.

We are therefore looking for members of the society to join a review group to:

  • Review and redesign the learning outcomes for our supervision register
  • Develop a format for supervision training that meets the learning outcomes and the need within the profession

Person Specification

Applications to join the review group are sought from members of the Society with membership of the following BPS Member Networks, who have knowledge and experience of designing and delivering training in academic, practice or management settings:

  • A full member of the Division of Academics, Researchers and Teachers in Psychology
  • A full member of the Division of Clinical Psychology
  • A full member of the Division of Counselling Psychology
  • A full member of the Division of Forensic Psychology

In addition, applicants must possess the following personal qualities:

  • Commitment to maintaining high standards
  • Ability to work to deadlines

We are expecting to appoint four members to the review group who will together possess a balance of relevant expertise across a range of contexts.

Level of Commitment

The work of the review group will commence with a one day workshop on Thursday 21 November 2019, followed by a commitment equating to one day per month for approximately four months, primarily in the form of face-to-face meetings.

Meetings are expected to take place at the Leicester office.

This is a voluntary role. We will reimburse travel and subsistence expenses in accordance with the society’s policy for any meetings you attend as part of your role.
