  • Attend promptly all arranged Supervision sessions.

  • Establish a safe environment in which professional and practice issues may be explored.
  • Assist the supervisee in clarifying, exploring, thinking, reflecting on feelings and perceptions underlying their work practice.
  • Give clear concise and constructive feedback where appropriate.
  • Facilitate appropriate information, experience and skill sharing.
  • Challenge unhelpful assumptions and attitudes that may influence practice.
  • Establish other factors that may impact on the supervisee’s work including working relationships with colleagues or personal circumstances within the scope of personal and professional boundaries.
  • Challenge all practice that is considered unethical or incompetent using the profession’s code of conduct/practice and the philosophies, policies and procedures of the organization they work for.
  • Be aware of organisational and political constraints.
  • Encourage the supervisee to take up issues with others where appropriate and to offer support.
  • Ensure that issues related to adult and child protection are embedded in professional practice and supervision.
