Providing Good Clinical Supervision is a 2-day course from the Association for Psychological Therapies (APT), a leading provider of accredited clinical supervision training courses in the UK and Ireland, for professionals working in mental health and related areas.
It is the only Clinical Supervision training that is APT-accredited and also gives you access to APT’s relevant downloadable resources for use post-course. The course is available for teams and individuals and can be attended face-to-face or online.
Clinical supervision is a key concept that many people are unclear about. Unclear whether 'supervision' means that you should be ensuring that the supervisee is 'doing it right' or whether you should be providing a sounding board for the supervisee to develop their clinical thinking, or what. And many people are equally unsure about exactly what their professional body has to say about it, and where to find that out.
This course is designed to clear up all of the above by looking at what the professional bodies say about supervision, how to establish a competent supervision contract, and how to deliver on that contract. The aim is, therefore, that by the end of the course you will both (a) know about clinical supervision and (b) be good at providing it.
You will be registered as having attended the course, thereby gaining APT's Level 1 accreditation, and receive a certificate to this effect. The accreditation gives you access to online resources associated with the course and access to the online exam if you wish to uprate your APT accreditation to Level 2.
Your registration lasts indefinitely, and your accreditation lasts for 3 years and is renewable by sitting an online refresher which also upgrades your accreditation to APT Level 2 if you are successful in the associated online exam.
Your accreditation is given value by the fact of over 125,000 people having attended APT training. See APT accreditation for full details.

Can I call myself a Clinical Supervisor after attending this course?
This is post qualification training so it is for people with the seniority to be supervisors who want to make sure they provide supervision as well as they can. The people who normally attend are – or about to be - supervisors in their own service, rather than people wishing to provide freelance supervision, although it is possible to offer your freelance services so long as you are totally transparent as to what qualifications you have and what training you have received.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments the Providing Good Clinical Supervision course has received.
“Just about everything has been of benefit to me as a supervisor (and supervisee). I would recommend this course unreservedly.”
"An exceptionally well delivered course which was wonderfully facilitated by the tutor. Depth and breadth of information that I will be able to take forward and introduce within my own occupational environment. Thank you, a great and valuable course."
