What is the Effective Supervision in The Early Years online course?

Staff that are well-supervised are proven to perform better, with fewer concerns raised by parents, fewer recorded complaints and a more consistent service provided. This short course, written by a childcare consultant, can help to ensure good practice is continually observed.

Since September 2012, it has been a legal requirement for staff within a childcare setting to receive supervision, ensuring that all staff members can focus on their personal and professional development and ensure the most effective practice provision.

For staff members to feel empowered and able to talk about any issues, adequate supervision needs to be in place. Staff should feel safe discussing issues regarding safeguarding, roles and responsibilities, concerns and ways of improving a setting, and supervision provides a safe arena in which this can take place.

Sign up to this course, implement and improve supervision in your setting, and you will soon see the benefits – not just for your staff members, but for the children and the families who use your service.
