This web site presents a directory of supervisors for the voluntary sector and is in response to a need for access to quality, affordable supervision for both paid staff and volunteers in the voluntary sector in Canterbury.
What is Supervision?
Among the numerous definitions of supervision, the following themes are apparent:
- supervision is a reflective, dynamic and enabling process
- a supervisor facilitates the process, within negotiated and agreed parameters
- the supervisor and worker may agree to work towards a combination of professional, organisational and personal objectives
- through supervision, workers develop and grow professionally, while being accountable to themselves, their clients, their agency and the community. [See more on our Resources page]
