Since 2018, the PSDP has provided high-quality continuing professional development (CPD) for approximately 800 practice supervisors throughout England making the transition from practitioner to first-line manager.

Emerging findings suggest that three to six months after the programme, practice supervisors report feeling more confident in their own abilities. The two areas of greatest development, identified by both practice supervisors and managers alike, is in relation to ‘performance management and improvement’ and ‘emotionally intelligent practice supervision’.  

The programme is delivered by a not-for-profit consortium led by Research in Practice, and includes: The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation TrustUniversity of Sussex and Goldsmiths, University of London. The Consortium is supported by a number of skilled Local Delivery Partners comprising universities, Teaching Partnerships and trusted CPD providers in every region.
