Coaching Supervision

What is Coaching Supervision?

A growing practice for supporting coaches keen to maintain and improve the quality of their coaching. Definitions of coaching supervision generally agree that:

  • Its goals include increased competence of the coach
  • Supervision is a formal process
  • It offers time for reflection in which the practice, tasks, process and challenges of coaching work can be explored

It can be undertaken:

  • One-to-one (face to face or by phone)
  • in a facilitated group
  • in peer groups.

Individual coaches will need to assess their own needs, possibly in discussion with their organisation’s Coaching Champion and will vary depending on a range of factors including their existing expertise and knowledge base and the amount of coaching they are undertaking.

There is no best practice model in relation to Supervision. 2006 Research by the CIPD found a range of practice . As an example, the Oxford School of Mentoring requires trainee coaches to have one hour of supervision for every 20 hours of coaching, and fully trained coaches have one hour of supervision for every 35 hours of coaching

Regular supervision opportunities are offered at discounted rates - the programme will include webinar, telephone and face to face group supervision.  It is also possible to access one to one supervision via South West Councils.  Price for one to one supervision available on request.
