-Final case study incorporating critical evaluation of theoretical basis of supervisory practice. This is specifically assessed using a scorecard within which the relevant criteria are listed. Criteria are marked as evidenced or not evidenced, and a markers scorecard determines the grade by matching criteria met with the grading structure.
Assessment (Coursework and Examination) continued…

The candidate must attend a minimum of 5 supervision sessions at which recordings are assessed by their supervisor and feedback provided on the SCS. The final supervisor’s reports provide a decision on whether the candidate is competent to supervise’
