Supervisors in adult care: tell us about your experiences at work

The SSSC has recently contacted registered supervisors in care at home services, housing support services and care home services for adults to announce a proposed change in the additional supervisory qualification that supervisors need for SSSC registration.

To ensure the SSSC get this right they need to hear directly from supervisors about their experiences and wish to understand the managerial and supervisory aspects of their role so they can work with others to offer the most effective support.

To start this process they would like supervisors to take part in one of six half day workshops in March, or one of a small number of telephone discussions.

Although this invitation is only for supervisors in the adult services listed above, there will be a wider online survey in March in relation to both the supervisory and management requirements in adult services.  (They are not considering any changes to the practice requirements for supervisors or managers in adult services at this time).  Anybody with an interest in supervisory or management qualification requirements will be invited to participate in this.

If you are a supervisor and would be interested in coming to an inquiry group or taking part in a short telephone discussion to share your views, please complete your details in this short form and the SSSC will get back in touch.
