Leading change in supervision: IRISS project

SASW have frequently commented on the need for good supervision, which allows workers and their managers to reflect on practice. We are pleased to note the IRISS Insight written by Martin Kettle from Glasgow Caledonian University.

IRISS's Leading Change in Supervision project aimed to explore the topic of supervision with six partners from across social services, and to highlight the challenges and enablers for changing supervision. 

A final report and case studies, as well as an IRISS Insight: Achieving effective supervision have been published.

The report, Leading change in supervision: messages for practice describes the rationale, process and learning from the project. The learning gathered provides some evidence, inspiration and pointers for those interested in improving supervision. Key points from the report can be used to prompt reflection and discussion with teams, to review current supervision practice and to help plan improvements.
