This programme is aimed at supporting individuals in their role as Site Supervisors of trainees registered on our other workforce development programmes delivered in collaboration with UCL at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families (AFNCCF).

In supporting the training needs of students registered on these government funded workforce programmes, there has been a clear need identified for Site Supervisors to be supported and trained to adequately oversee the work of trainees within all these various settings. The UCL Supervisors programme will help to extend the Supervisor’s knowledge and understanding of evidence-based practice and supervision models within CAMHS, community and school settings.

The programme represents a departure from discipline-based supervision to supporting the development of competencies in supervisors to enable the delivery of a range of models in their services aligned to the evidence base for low intensity interventions.

Who can apply?

This programme is aimed at students who are employed in sites where trainees are delivering the training programmes referred to above. Supervisors will be required to supervise at least one trainee practitioner on their site to meet requirements for this course. All supervisors will be required to supervise trainees weekly and to run supervision groups of trainees where numbers dictate. Applicants must have two years of clinical experience working within CYP Educational or Mental Health settings.

Career Prospects

The programme is designed to train and guide students whilst they undertake a role as a site supervisor within a relevant CYPMH (Children and Young People’s Mental Health) service. Following successful completion, you will continue working on-site as a Supervisor, with an enhanced skill set, further developing these within an applied setting. You may also go on to mentor other new site supervisors, thus supporting your employability prospects.
