Effective supervision in the early years

Effective supervision in the early years


In September 2012 it became a legal requirement that staff within daycare settings receive ‘Supervision’, but what is supervision? In this course, aimed at room leaders and managers, you will be introduced to the concept of supervision and its important role within a well-managed setting, particularly in terms of safeguarding. You will also be introduced to some basic points of good practice with regard to implementing supervision processes in your own setting.

This short course has been written by international early years consultant and trainer Laura Henry and is intended to be used as ongoing CPD for existing managers, or as a part of a suite of leadership and management courses for introducing team-leader-level staff to new aspects of managerial practice. 

Learning outcomes 

  • You will learn what is meant by ‘supervision’
  • You will learn the importance of supervision within a daycare setting
  • You will gain an understanding of the basic principles of supervision for application in your own setting

Advantages of this course
