Course content

We are delighted to launch our new postgraduate certificate in supervision in counselling, coaching and other helping professions. The course is designed to help you acquire the knowledge and skills required for supervision. It is aimed at counsellors and psychotherapists, coaches, nurses, teachers, social workers and other professionals who wish to develop and enhance their continuing personal and professional development alongside their supervisory skills and practice.

For experienced professionals, becoming a trained supervisor is the next step in terms of professional development. As a supervisor, you will combine your professional knowledge and experience with a range of theories and skills to support the development of novice and trained counsellors, psychotherapist, coaches, nurses, teachers or social workers alike.

The School of Psychology at UEL offers an evidence-based approach grounded in the most up-to-date theories in the field.

This postgraduate certificate will help you to understand the purpose and principles of supervision and to make critical judgements on the application of various supervision models and techniques required for professional practice.

We are in support of promoting equality, diversity and inclusion by our mode of delivery (i.e., monthly block sessions), as this allows a broader range of working professionals to participate.

If you are interested in becoming a supervisor and wish to learn more about training requirements, please contact us.
