Supervision of Practice

This part has separate forms for:

Individual supervision [ PDF version | Word version ]

Group, team or peer supervision [ PDF version | Word version ]

Please complete a form for:

  • each supervision arrangement for the practice hours shown in A, B or C
  • each supervision arrangement for your current work

If you have more than one arrangement with the same supervisor (for example, you have the same supervisor for individual supervision and group supervision), complete a separate page for each different arrangement.

You must show that all practice submitted in parts A, B and C is supervised for at least 1½ hours per month.

This can be achieved through individual, group, team or peer supervision or a combination of these.

Remember that you cannot count all the time in group, team or peer supervision – see the guidance notes for how to calculate what time you can count towards this.

Guidance for the Supervisor

A Supervisor Report is required as part of the application for accreditation. As a nominated supervisor you should confirm the supervision arrangements. Prior to completing the Report you should read the case material, which should be a typical example of the applicant’s work with clients.

When you have completed your report, please give it to the applicant. They will sign it and send it to us with their application form. The applicant may also ask you to witness and verify their training certificate(s) to confirm they are authentic.

We may contact you as part of the assessment procedure.

If you have any questions about your report, please email us at office@fdap.org.uk or write to us at:
