Step Two

Professional Supervision

Non-clinical Health Practitioner Supervision

All non-clinical staff who have undertaken Personalised Care Institute (PCI) accredited training should have access to Professional Supervision Group Sessions to support skills development and share learning and insight as part of their continuing professional development.

This requirement is set out in The Workforce Development Frameworks - Health and Wellbeing Coach, Care Coordinator, and Social Prescribing Link Worker.   

We have 2 models of small group supervision (maximum 8 people per group):

“Reflect & Learn”

Small group sessions suitable for:

  • Social Prescribing Link Workers
  • Care Coordinators
  • Practitioners who provide non-clinical personalised conversations

These sessions provide an opportunity to participate in structured group supervisions (3 sessions over approximately 4 months), with a view to identifying colleagues who wish to develop their skills to take a lead on facilitating the peer supervision group.

Help & Care will provide guidance and facilitate the development of a Community of Practice for the new-to-practice peer-leads.

Health Coaching Supervision

Small groups suitable for:

  • Health & Wellbeing Coaches 

These sessions will be provided by trained health coaching supervisors or those working towards becoming trained supervisors.

We piloted monthly Reflect & Learn sessions with support from Help & Care facilitators between Oct-Dec 2022 for Social Prescribers, Care Coordinators, and our Health Coach. This enabled staff to explore their personal and professional learning from experience in a safe, supportive, and confidential space. We had recognised that management supervision does not offer this opportunity to develop as reflective practitioners. The feedback from those who participated has been extremely positive and we are committed to maintaining and developing this provision as our standard supervision & support framework for our non-clinical staff.
