Supervisor Online Training
This training is a great opportunity for supervisors to improve their skills in providing professional/clinical supervision to other staff. This foundation training builds on the supervisors' existing knowledge of supervision, and explores issues such as the supervisory relationship, goal setting with supervisees, facilitating reflective practice and evaluation of supervision.
Please note that this training relates to professional/clinical supervision and NOT operational management.
This foundation level training will provide participants with the skills necessary to provide effective supervision of other staff. By the end of the training, you will be able to:
- describe the key concepts of professional/clinical supervision
- list essential elements of the supervision process including the supervision agreement
- assist supervisees with goal setting within the supervision context
- discuss the significance of the supervisory relationship in effective supervision
- identify ways of supporting and challenging supervisees with different learning preferences/styles
- identify ways of facilitating the supervisee's reflective practice within the supervision context
- describe strategies and models of providing feedback effectively
- describe the importance of evaluating supervision and how this may be approached.
This training is interprofessional and is open to staff from allied health, nursing, medicine, dentistry and other health professions. This training is open to:
- Darling Downs Hospital and Health Service staff
- other Queensland Health staff
- external participants.
Please note: Although this training has been developed for health professionals from allied health, nursing, medicine and dentistry, some administrative staff have completed this training and have found it useful.

Katherine, Human Resource Advisor
I have had the opportunity to complete the Cunningham Centre Supervisor Online Training. Although the admin stream doesn’t have the same kind of formal, structured arrangements or mandatory requirements to undertake supervision, I still found some interesting points in the training that will be useful for my role. In particular, I liked the sections on setting up a supervisory arrangement to ensure clarity; self-disclosure by the supervisor; striking a balance between supporting and challenging the supervisee; different learning styles and challenging your supervisee to learn in different ways; barriers to an effective supervisory relationship; reflective practice; and providing feedback.
While some of the training is really only specific to clinical streams, there is enough general information to make it worthwhile for supervisors from other streams to complete the training.
