Concept of supervision

Supervision is a formal, pedagogical, relational enabling process with the purpose to strengthen resources, enhance assertiveness and improve independence and coping through a dialogue based on knowledge and humanistic values. (Tveiten, 2006)

By formal meaning as part of job or integrated in work including defined frames as objectives, time and roles.

Target groups of supervision

The supervision can be organized in a group or individual setting, and is for individuals, groups and organisations which want to enhance and strengthen their coping competence in different fields.

Training of supervisors

Educational programs according to NOSCO standards are delivered by Universities, University Colleges and private training institutions. NOSCO operates with two different standards for their qualified supervisors.
