Improving supervision in social work

‘Effective Supervision is the cornerstone of safe social work practice. There is no substitute for it’

Lord Laming in his Inquiry report into the death of Victoria Climbié (2003)

This event will showcase how some councils and teams are changing their supervision culture and how they have already improved practice. It will provide practical tools to support your thinking around supervision. It will allow you to learn from others about what they do, what works well, and to hear about models of supervision. It will also create discussion about the support managers need locally and nationally around this key issue.

Who should attend?

If you work in a local authority social care team and are directly managing and supervising social workers and/or occupational therapists then this event is for you. 

This is a Scottish Government-led practitioner engagement event.
