Supervision of Probationers

Training in Supervision of Probationers

From September 2019, all circuits receiving Probationary Ministers are required to offer them supervision under the Supervision Policy.

This means a Supervisor will need to have been trained on a Connexional Supervision Training Course, Responsible Grace, that is, they will have trained since September 2017 and been approved to supervise under the policy. Those who have attended training prior to September 2017 will need to retrain under the current policy.

Training course options

For those who have already attended the training and who are in supervision themselves, all you need to do is attend at a special event on Supervising a Probationer at The Queen's Foundation on 20 May 2020. During this briefing, time will be devoted to addressing the distinctive nature of supervision a Minister on Probation and how that leads to Supervision modelled in the training Responsible Grace.

You will also be invited to an afternoon of meeting your Probationary Minister that will also take place at The Queen’s Foundation on 20 May 2020.

Please contact Karen Vincent at to get signed up if needed.

For those who have not yet attended training (or who were trained before September 2017), please contact to request a place on a suitable Supervision Training Course. You will also need to arrange to attend the events listed above.
