About this course

This certificate in advanced supervision training is designed to support clinicians working in mental health settings. You'll learn to supervise trainee and qualified low intensity cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) staff in mental health support teams.

The course supports clinical supervisors working within mental health settings, supporting children and young people with mental health problems. Our clinical supervision training builds upon your existing expertise and supervisory practice. Typically, prospective students will have previously completed their own mental health training and gained accreditation.

You will gain an understanding of what makes for good supervision and what qualities are needed to become a competent clinical supervisor, incorporating pedagogical methods. Training is provided in two common types of supervision at a low intensity level, and we support trainee supervisor’s to put theory into practice.

We regularly review our courses to ensure and improve quality. This course may be revised as a result of this. Any revision will be balanced against the requirement that the student should receive the educational service expected. Find out why, when, and how we might make changes.

Our courses are regulated in England by the Office for Students (OfS).
