Supervision requires skill, and it's important to have formal frameworks in place to support staff who are learning how to be effective clinical supervisors.

Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and Birmingham City University's department of mental health and learning disability have developed a degree-level module that prepares staff to become clinical supervisors.

The course was developed to provide clinical staff with a theoretical framework for carrying out clinical supervision as well as the opportunity to learn experientially the skills of effective clinical supervision. 

This downloadable resource - preparing staff to become clinical supervisors - summarises the module and provides the contact details of the lead.

Due for review October 2013
