The Code of Practice for Social Care Workers and the Code of Practice for Social Care Employers states the principles to be followed in carrying out Performance management, supervision and all appraisal and evaluation within social care.
Effective supervision promotes a culture of learning within organisations, encouraging individuals to discuss their learning needs and how to address these. It takes into account individuals’ language and cultural needs.
The National Minimum Standards on staff supervision states that ‘Staff have regular, recorded supervision meetings at least once every two months (3 months for Domiciliary care) with their senior/manager in addition to regular contact on day to day practice (fortnightly supervision where there is no regular contact; pro-rata for part-time staff).
This training is for everyone responsible for carrying out supervision and appraisal with social care workers. The training complies with CQC Outcome 14; “Supporting workers” (Staff should be properly trained, supervised, and have the chance to develop and improve their skills).
