Developing supervision expertise

With greater emphasis on coaching across public services, there comes an increased need to ensure that coaches are supported to grow and develop in their roles. Coaching supervision is a key to help manage this and provide quality assurance of coaching, as well as development of good professional practice within the coaching community.

Coaching supervision can be defined as a

“formal process of professional support, which ensures continuing development of the coach and effectiveness of his/her coaching practice through interactive reflection, interpretative evaluation and the sharing of expertise” (Bachkirova, Stevens and Willis, 2005).

To support meeting this demand, we are looking to deliver a supervision training programme towards the end of this year.

In the meantime there are other ways you could get involved in supervision:

  • If you are delivering in-house supervision training with your coaches within your own organisation you could extend an invitation to fellow coaches on the community network hub to join you which could be reciprocated. Or you could join forces and organise some joint supervision sessions.
  • If you are qualified in supervision and would like to support by providing some supervision sessions please email us at academiwalescoachingandmentoring@gov.wales.
