The Clinical Supervision grant supports social service agencies in engaging external consultants for clinical supervision for staff to enhance their professional skills, usually in the areas of casework and counselling.
The grant supports the capability building of professional staff such as social workers, case workers, counsellors and psychologists over two years.
The clinical supervision usually includes individual supervision and group supervision to improve professional skills of staff, plus a Supervision of Supervisors (SOS) component to develop the supervisory competencies of the social service agency’s internal clinical supervisors.
To fully benefit from the Clinical Supervision grant, the below deliverables (A to F) are set for applicants to meet by the end of their projects. These deliverables may be subject to changes within the context of each application submitted, upon assessment and review by NCSS.
