You need supervision


Less than 15% of youth workers get supervision which meets the recommended level. One session per month for an hour. The resulting problems lead many to burnout and even to leave the youth sector entirely.

If you are a professional youth worker you should be getting supervision which supports you as a person, a practitioner and a professional.

Our Philosophy

We focus on three areas of the supervision process; administration, education and support to develop the whole person whilst fostering appropriate accountability and best practice in our discipline. Supervision strengthens the workers ability to respond to uncertainty and complexity in their chosen field of practice.

Supervision never happens in a vacuum. As such we provide the opportunity to develop a whole of organisation process for supervision including developing policies and processes as well as involving managers where appropriate. We are also acutely aware that teams need a safe reflective space for collective case discussion and debriefing. To this end we also provide group supervision sessions where participants are active contributors to knowledge building, advocacy and support initiatives within their team environment.

Supervision is Awesome

Time to make a decision for your future 

Supervision is one of the best tools available to youth workers to help them to critically reflect on the work they do. It helps them to debrief in tough times and celebrate the rare mountain top experiences. It also builds them as people, practitioners and as members of a profession.

If you are a youth worker you need to be getting supervision on a regular basis.
