Is supervision provided within the course?

A substantial element of your learning within training comes from the supervision of your placement.

Supervision which is provided within the course will probably provide a more coherent learning opportunity than if your supervisor is not linked to the programme.  External supervision is also likely to add to the cost of your training.

Live supervision (reviewing of audio or videotapes or sitting in a session) is essential for accreditation and there's evidence that this enhances your learning and skills as a therapist. It's worth checking if this is required for any course you are interested in.

Both of these are provided on all accredited courses by supervisors who are BABCP all accredited practitioners.
