Supervisors event 2024

The event will explore the issues manifesting in supervision, including the challenges supervisors might face. It’ll also look at the contextual, contemporary, and practice-based issues that present in supervision. 

This event aims to create time and space to connect with peers working within contemporary supervision, whatever stage of your career.

We hope to establish a community and collaborative feel with the opportunity to network in-person with peers, learn from presenters and share knowledge. Along with the strand facilitators, you’ll also be able to identify ideas and solutions that can be explored further.

Join us in-person on Thursday 26 September  from 9:00am until 5:00pm at the Doubletree by Hilton Bristol City Centre.
