Supervision for Pastoral Staff

An introduction on providing supervision for pastoral staff

There continues to be increasing demand on education staff to support children, young people, and their families on a regular basis.  Many of which have complex social and emotional issues as well as learning related needs.  This also comes at a time when many of the services that have supported families in the past have been cut.  Dealing with risk, trauma and uncertainty for school staff can have a negative impact on their stress levels and if left unattended can lead to absence, burn-out and vicarious trauma.  If you are interested in providing safe, supportive, and effective supervision for your team, this course is for you. 

By the end of the one and a half days you will;

  • Have a greater understanding of the purpose of supervision
  • Have strengthened your communication skills for supervisory practice
  • Have put into practice a model of supervision
  • Be confident to immediately offer supervision to pastoral and support staff in your organisation

The one and a half day course uses a mixture of theory as well as practical, hands on and experiential learning.  A must do for anyone who is interested in supporting staff to be the best they can for the children and young people they work with.  As well as protecting the emotional well-being and mental health of their staff.
