Disabilities can be physical, sensory, developmental, cognitive, intellectual, or mental. They may also be a combination of any of these types. This course explores the scope and nature of disability and disabled support to help individuals better respond to issues faced by persons living with a disability, whatever the disability might be.

  • Introduction to Professional Supervision
  • Models of Supervision
  • Professionalism, Ethics, and Legal Concerns
  • Different Approaches to Supervision
  • Supervision for Different Professions
  • Organisational Considerations
  • Managing Supervision

This course is essential training for anyone working in helping professions, nursing, aged care and disabilities, counselling, teaching and those that work in business.

Students learn about different models of supervision, their pros and cons, and their relevance to different types of workplace scenarios. It is of value as much to people offering supervision as to those undertaking it, and given that we each benefit from supervision regardless of our station, the course may be of value to most people.
