This workshop will focus on having better quality supervision conversations.  It will explore the developmental approach of Coaching as a way to have better quality conversations with your students.

This  workshop can be used as  a ‘Day-to-Day Supervision Skills’ option towards the Strathclyde Supervisor Development Programme.

The session will cover:

  • coaching as a developmental approach
