About the Professional Supervision Program

The Professional Supervision Program is an initiative that has been developed as part of the University’s Strategic Goal Changing Culture: Responding to the Royal Commission.

From 2021, two new Professional Supervision awards will be offered in a single program across the whole University:

  • Graduate Certificate in Professional Supervision
  • Graduate Diploma in Professional Supervision

The Program engages with the major Christian traditions and will serve a substantial, diverse cohort of students. As well as providing dynamic peer-to-peer learning, this will support formation of supervisors who understand denominational interests across a wide range of traditions and who are able to provide the independence recommended by the Royal Commission.

These awards are for a wide range of people in the helping professions to develop or extend their skills by equipping them to provide supervision to individuals or groups working in areas such as ministry, health, education, chaplaincy and leadership.  These awards teach a range of supervisory models and have reflective practice as a core component including theological reflection. It is envisaged there will be students from around Australia and New Zealand including regional and remote areas and in 2021 the awards will be delivered online.

About the position

The Professional Supervision Program Coordinator coordinates and contributes to the delivery of the component units of the Graduate Certificate in Professional Supervision and the Graduate Diploma in Professional Supervision. The Professional Supervision Program Coordinator leads a teaching team for the awards and is expected to teach a component or guide experiential learning in each unit. As the program grows, the Professional Supervision Program Coordinator may produce or facilitate research in the area. The Professional Supervision Program Coordinator works with a Professional Supervision Program Committee that is responsible for the academic quality and strategic effectiveness of the Program.
