Practice Supervisor Development Programme open for registration
15 August 2018
The first wave of the Practice Supervisor Development Programme (PSDP) is now open for registration and senior colleagues in local authorities are invited to nominate participants who would benefit from being part of this programme.
The PSDP, funded by the Department for Education, aims to provide high-quality continuous professional development for up to 700 newly-appointed Practice Supervisors. These are social workers taking up their first role in which they are responsible for supporting and developing the practice of others.
Each local authority across England has been allocated three spaces on the programme, which includes five days of face-to-face teaching delivered regionally, alongside small action learning sets, 1:1 telephone coaching and a programme of self-directed study. A four to six week break between cohort sessions will also allow for reflection and cementing of learning.
Please note the deadline for nominating participants is Monday 3 September. Senior colleagues in local authorities who wish to nominate participants should contact PSDP@rip.org.uk or 01803 847200.
