Effective supervision in a variety of settings
Putting effective supervision into practice: Self-check your supervision practice
- What are the outcomes of your supervision practice? This should be agreed beforehand and ideally with a time frame. For example, for the supervisee to become more proactive about their own learning, for decision-making about people who use services to be more robust.
- Has your supervision practice achieved the intended outcomes?
- Is there a benefit from the point of view of the person at the core of the process (i.e. the person who uses services)?
- Are there any other benefits?
It is important to clarify what is meant by ‘outcome’ and what is meant by ‘benefit’. Outcome is used here to mean ‘end result’, aim or objective. Benefit means a positive result from the point of view of a particular group of people. This will be subjective because it will be informed by their point of view. Moreover, what may benefit one individual or group may not benefit another.
