Participant reviews

So much information, well delivered and backed up by the learning pack.

Good variety of methods - discussions, group work, role play.

I feel I have gained additional knowledge as well as confidence in managing supervision.

Excellent trainers, knowledgeable, caring and interesting.

The day course has been a reflective pace to enable to think about the value of and transferable skills used within the supervision. A good mix of multi- disciplinary professionals.

I have thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this course. It has been extremely informative with lots of practical exercises which I feel I will be able to put into practice to enhance my professional life and supervise effectively.

Every question was answered thoroughly and the trainers created a safe, really appropriate environment to learn in.
