Full Supervisor Training

Clinical Supervision Services (CSS) is an approved Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA) Supervisor Training Provider, providing Supervisor Full Training and Supervisor Master Classes.

Supervisor Full Training

Psychologists wanting to become PsyBA approved supervisors need to complete Supervisor Full Training, consisting of three components completed in sequence (Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3). Once all three components are successfully completed, participants can apply for supervisor accreditation effective for 5 years.

  • Part 1: Knowledge assessment. Part 1 requires 8-10 hours of self-directed preparatory work relating to knowledge of best-practice supervision and knowledge of relevant Board codes, guidelines and policies. Completion of Part 1 requires passing an online assessment. Part 1 must be completed (pass grade 80%) BEFORE Part 2.

  • Part 2: Skills training workshop. Part 2 is a two-day workshop focusing on integrating knowledge and practical skills. It requires direct/live training to develop practical supervision skills that are relevant to all supervisee training pathways and to reflective supervision practice. 

  • Part 3: Competency-based assessment and evaluation. Part 3 requires you to submit an electronic recording of a supervision session and a written reflection of the session. The training provider will systematically assess your demonstration of supervisor competencies and provide a pass or fail grade and feedback.

Please note: AHPRA has approved both Skills Based Workshops and Master Classes for both videoconferencing and face-to-face delivery until 31st December 2028.  Delivery mode is indicated on both the information page for dates and the enrolment page. Most workshops are currently delivered via ZOOM  videoconferencing.
