How Effective Are Your Supervision Meetings?

All too often in the health and care sector, supervision meetings are just an opportunity to moan, communicate information that should have already been passed on already or to tell an employee what they are doing wrong. As a result, they are often seen as unconstructive performance management meetings that add little value. Even if your meetings are nowhere near that bad, could you be getting more out of them?

Effective supervision meetings are critical to any business

This workshop equips supervisors with the tools and techniques required to ensure that their supervision meetings and performance management, meet both regulatory requirements and truly add value to all those impacted.


CQC and NHS guidelines on National Minimum Standards, specify that employees must receive regular "supervision meetings" with their manager and also have a formal appraisal as part of a performance management system. Typically these are run by the immediate line manager who could well be a relatively junior and inexperienced employee, recently promoted from a support or nursing role.

As supervision meetings are so critical to ensuring key tasks, standards and development objectives are met, plus poor performers are dealt with effectively, it is crucial that line managers are trained in performance management and supervision skills.

Who Would Benefit From Attending This Workshop?

Any manager, team leader or supervisor that carries out clinical supervision meetings, appraisals or is involved in providing feedback as part of performance management. Aimed at NHS managers and supervisory staff from mental health care, dementia care or any other form of residential, social or hospital care environment. This workshop also forms an effective element of nursing training, where supervision is to be part of the role.

How Will This Be Delivered?

This workshop can be run as a one or two day programme, with day two run 6 weeks later, after delegates have had an opportunity to carry out a supervision meeting. This workshop utilises accelerated learning techniques and is designed to be effective whether delegates have a visual, auditory or kinaesthetic preference for learning.

The first day is broken down into 20 minute segments, where you will learn something, discuss it in groups and then practice with other delegates. Where relevant you will then prepare for one of your real supervision meetings.

At the subsequent optional session run approximately 6 weeks later (to ensure all delegates have completed at least one supervision meeting) you will self-reflect on how it went against a set of 22 specific questions designed to ensure a meaningful analysis takes place. Experiences will be discussed as a group and development plans completed. The session will continue with a refresher of all the key techniques covered.
