Analyse the principles, scope and purpose of professional supervision
Professional supervision is where responsibility is given to the worker by an organization to perform work with other workers to meet specific organizational, professional and personal objectives. Supervision principle provides the supervisor and the supervisee the opportunity to discuss the roles and responsibilities in a safe and planned environment. For example, if an individual decides to do supervision, it is necessary to be aware of certain expectations from each other during supervision (Chiller, & Crisp, 2012).Supervision purpose is to allow employers and the workers to have a meeting one on one to reflect and evaluate their work practice. During supervision, it is significant to discuss individual’s workload, skills necessary and the needs for training. Additionally, it is also essential to consider competence. This provides an opportunity to address individuals’ issues that may arise from other workers and residents. It also gives a plot of how the project is running and how new suggestions may be initiated. The scope entails ways in which professional supervision can be achieved (Chiller, & Crisp, 2012).
