Iriss's Leading Change in Supervision project aimed to explore the topic of supervision with six partners from across social services, and to highlight the challenges and enablers for changing supervision.
The final report and case studies, as well as an Iriss Insight - Achieving effective supervision - have been published.
The report - Leading change in supervision: messages from practice - describes the rationale, process and learning from the project. The learning gathered provides some evidence, inspiration and pointers for those interested in improving supervision. Key points from the report can be used to prompt reflection and discussion with teams, to review current supervision practice and to help plan improvements.
Partner's experiences are explored through five case studies which can be found in section six of the report. The case studies, based on in-depth interviews, provide a snapshot of each partner's context, and detail the challenges and enablers they encountered.
The Iriss Insight Achieving effective supervision on the topic summarises key research evidence and draws out implications for practice. It was written by Martin Kettle (Glasgow Caledonian University).
