Supervision Programme

Supervision Programme

Welcome to our Coram Deo Supervision Programme.

Together with the Continued Learning programme (that is CPD) we refer to it as the Third Year of studies at Coram Deo. Our supervision programme is accredited by the University of Pretoria.

Supervision is formally a process of development for either new practitioners or among professional peers as many professional bodies nowadays require ongoing supervision.

Our programme is open to anyone (teachers, parents, managers, leaders, and more) but there are some terms that you have to take note of. The basic admission requirement is that the prospective student should have undergone a sufficient amount of prior learning in narrative practice (such as the Coram Deo advanced certificate or recognised other provider). If not then the programme is still open to helping practitioners as long as they realise that the framework within which our supervisors work is narrative. Thus we will still be working with stories (yours, that our our cultures or society, clients but the outcome is not to train you in how to work with stories. 

You can come from any helping modality but the same applies as above: Though you can come from any helping modality (coaching, counselling, mentoring, psychology) you have to know that the way it will be facilitated will mostly be dealt with from a narrative approach. Training in narrative for this kind of supervision is not a requirement and you will experience the benefit of a narrative approach irrespective of your own professional background.

You can focus your supervision journey on more specific themes as complemented by modules from the specific year’s Continued Learning programme.
