FINDING A SUPERVISOR

Finding a supervisor

We recommend that Sign Language Interpreters seek a Professional Supervisor who has attended either a Diploma in Supervision or a PG Certificate in Supervision. Both courses should provide in-depth training of 120-150 teaching and practice hours (including assessment of supervisory skills), to fully equip successful students to carry out their roles and responsibilities.

Professional Supervisors will also possess appropriate up to date insurance, maintain professional membership and commit to their own ongoing supervision arrangements.

The supervisor should be happy to answer any questions you may have and listen to what you are looking for as a Sign Language Interpreter.

If during your initial contact you believe the supervisor meets your needs, arrange to meet them in person. Many supervisors offer a no fee/reduced fee initial consultation where you would negotiate a contract.

Expect to pay between £40 and £60 an hour for individual supervision, and to meet for between 1- 2 hours monthly, depending on your needs.

Group supervision is usually for 2 hours a month, with a maximum of four members in the group. The cost is usually shared
equally amongst group members.

Being a Supervisor is a rewarding role and can provide a secondary income stream. If you are considering becoming a Supervisor
please take a look at our Diploma in Supervision page for more details and, of course, get in touch with any questions you may have, we’ll be very happy to talk over anything you need.
