- About Deakin
This self study online program provides participants with comprehensive coverage of the knowledge necessary for practising as a supervisor; including defining supervision and its purpose, models of supervision, supervisor competencies and requirements, evaluation in supervision, the PsyBA pathways and supervisory requirements, the National Psychology Exam and legal and ethical issues relevant to supervision. The full content of this component is expected to take at least 7 hours to complete. Short quizzes enable participants to assess their learning and be directed to areas needing revision.
A multiple choice test assesses your mastery of this fundamental knowledge; successful completion of this enables you to register for the next component.
The workshop comprises face-to-face training, conducted in small groups, over two full days. Conducted by Deakin staff experienced in the training of supervisors, the workshop focuses on the development best-practice skills in supervision. Discussions, small group exercises and other activities will build participants' competency in the delivery of high quality supervision. A light lunch will be provided. Workshops will be offered 4 times per year.
Please note: Evidence of successful completion of a Board approved Knowledge Training component is required prior to commencement of the Skills Training Workshop.
We look forward to offering workshops in further regional Victoria centres and other states in the future.
In this third component, participants submit a video of their supervision practice, together with a self-reflective analysis of the session. Examiners will provide participants with a competency-based assessment report. The video and reflective analysis must be submitted within 12 weeks of completion of the Skills Training Workshop.
