Supervision for Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSLs) and Deputy DSLs is recognised as an essential requirement. The “Working Together to Safeguard Children” (March 2015) government guidelines for inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children highlights that: “Professionals should be given sufficient time, funding, supervision and support to fulfil their welfare and safeguarding responsibilities effectively.”
We are delighted to offer a series of six, group supervision sessions across an academic year, specifically for DSLs and Deputy DSLs.
What is Supervision?
The purpose of supervision is to provide a safe and confidential space for staff to reflect on and discuss their work and their personal and professional responses to their work. The focus is on supporting staff in their personal and professional development and in reflecting on their practice.
What are the benefits? These supportive sessions will help staff:
- Develop their resilience and sense of wellbeing
- Feel valued, understood and accepted
- Develop their problem-solving and solution finding skills.
- Increase their feelings of competence
- Reduce their stress; avoiding ‘burnout.’
- Reflect on their practice and learn from this.
Unique to Futures in Mind, these group supervision sessions will provide a space where members can benefit from sharing with, listening to and learning from peers.
The sessions will be facilitated by an Educational Psychologist with enhanced supervision training, who is on the Register for Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS – https://www.bps.org.uk/lists/rapps).
