The process of supervision involves a series of regular meetings over the course of each year. Typically 6 lots of 90 minutes or 9 single hour slots.
Each session goes through a number of phases.
- Hosting and Containing
- Eliciting and Focusing
- Exploring and Reflecting
- Bridging and Enacting
- Reviewing and Closing
- Tracking and Evaluating
Supervisors are trained using the Greenwich Foot Tunnel Model which guides the use of these phases in each of the supervision sessions. The model and process should be shared with the supervisee either at the initial supervision meeting when the Covenant is made or at a district/regional briefing event. Details of such events should be available from your Regional Learning Network Coordinator.
A supervisee needs to be fully present at supervision. To enable this we have produced a role descriptor.
Please see the FAQs about supervision for more details.
