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 that is required is attendance at a special event on Supervising a Probationer that will take place on 22 May, 2019 at The Queen’s Foundation, followed by an afternoon of meeting your Probationary Minister. During this briefing, time will be devoted to addressing the distinctive nature of supervision a Minister on Probation – please contact Karen Vincent at the Queen’s Foundation for details and to make your booking – vincentk@queens.ac.uk

For those who have not yet attended training (or who were trained before September 2017), please contact supervision@methodistchurch.org.uk to request a place on a suitable Supervision Training Course.
