Board Approved Supervisor Training for Australian Psychologists

A psychologist registered with AHPRA and wanting to become a Board-approved supervisor needs to complete Board-approved competency-based supervisor training (full training), consisting of three components that need to be completed in sequence.

Part 1: Knowledge Assessment

This part requires at least seven hours of self-directed preparatory work relating to knowledge of best-practice supervision and knowledge of relevant Board codes, guidelines and policies. Completion of this part requires passing an online assessment.

Part 2: Skills training workshop

This two-day workshop focuses 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. Find out more>

Part 3: Competency-based assessment and evaluation

This part 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. Find out more >
