Course summary

Delivered through a combination of distance learning and experiential weekends, the part-time Postgraduate Diploma Consultative Supervision has an excellent reputation as a comprehensive training package for continuing professional development, covering both the practical and theoretical aspects of consultative supervision. This course is enjoyable, creative, and experiential. It is suitable for counsellors, psychotherapists (of all modalities), and other helping professionals such as teachers, social workers, IDVAs and ISVAs, ministers, sign language interpreters, and anyone who wants to offer non-managerial supervision in a warm and creative environment.

You’ll develop a broad toolkit of theories, methods, techniques, and skills, enabling you to deliver effective, ethical, and creative supervision across professions. Your own reflective practice will also be deepened by your engagement with these models and methods.

You can exit with a Postgraduate Diploma or continue to complete the MA degree, which consists of project managing a community-based intervention or developing a unique research study.

We intend to deliver our courses in a blended format; with a proportion of the teaching and learning being delivered digitally, and where it is safe to do so, some teaching and learning being delivered in person and using social distancing and/or mitigating measures as deemed appropriate in line with government guidance.


You will be assessed by one recording of a real supervision session with analysis, a file of evidence containing your reflective learning from home study packs, one 3,000 word essay and two 1,500 word essays, two skills observations and one group presentation.


Previous graduates have found employment in local counselling agencies, the NHS, education establishments, and with USW counselling services. Many graduates have also expanded their private practice to include supervision. Students can choose to apply for the final Masters Research and dissertation stage.
