The supervision curriculum is underpinned by the UCL (University College London) Supervision of Psychological Therapies competence framework, supplemented by recommendations from the University of Leicester's evaluation of the framework (commissioned by BACP in 2011).

The curriculum offers training providers a framework for training counselling supervisors, reflecting the supervision competences. It details the topics required for supervision training, with a session-by-session guide for the programme.

BACP competences and curricula

Our competences and curricula are based on the latest research evidence into effective practice. They can be used by practitioners, trainers, supervisors and services to ensure practitioners have the skills and knowledge needed to work in a particular setting, or with particular clients.
