The Supervision course is for MANAGEMENT AND SENIOR STAFF only. We regularly run the Supervision course at public training events and it is available as personalised distance learning. We do offer it as an in house course for all senior staff if you wish but it is more cost effective to run it as telephone and email training.
There are three new regulations in the new EYFS on this topic (3.19, 3.20, 3.22 ) and
Supervision has a high impact at inspection. Inspectors are currently basing one third of their overall judgement on the management of staff. If you want to check this information please copy and paste the following link in to your web browser:
The purpose of this course is to enable providers and managers to be able to meet the
regulations set in “The safeguarding and welfare requirements in the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage”. The course will give you the chance to look at not only what is required but what is best practice. You will have the opportunity to discuss ideas and to practice in a safe environment. From this training you should be confident to write forms to use in supervision and make changes to your employees terms and conditions and handbook. It has an immediate impact on staff performance at inspection.
