Supervision refers to an educational process based on a relationship between supervisor and trainees in which trainees are helped to reflect on their own experiences, both individually and in small groups, in order to achieve greater awareness of and sensitivity to their client’s, patient’s or parishioner’s needs, and to develop their own personal, professional pastoral identity and functioning. Supervisors are people accredited by the NSWCCPE Inc. after having been assessed as possessing the qualifications, abilities and training to supervise.
You are thinking of applying to become a CPE supervisor. Here are some questions to help you decide whether that is the way ahead for you.
If your answer to these questions is YES, then keep on reading. Maybe CPE supervision is for you. The process of becoming a fully accredited CPE supervisor takes at least six years. There are three main review points: admission to supervision, accreditation as a CP Supervisor, accreditation as a CP Educator. On the way, you join in a peer group with other supervisors-in-formation (SIFs) to discern your readiness for each stage of the journey. Senior supervisors provide support, guidance, education, and ongoing supervision.

Time period: Year One - October to June

Stage 2: Formation and
