About this course


The supervisor role is key in implementing and continually improving a successful IPS service in order to maintain a high quality of IPS practice and providing the best service for its IPS clients. 

Aimed at new IPS supervisors and team leaders, this course will help you to manage and develop IPS services. This course is an extension of our “Doing What Works” course and focuses on the role and responsibilities of the supervisor in IPS. 

We recommend that delegates complete “Doing What Works” training, or have a good understanding of the IPS principles and fidelity model before attending this course.

This interactive live online course is useful both for supervisors and their managers who want to support IPS teams to improve service performance, compliance to the IPS fidelity model and increase both quantity and quality of job outcomes for clients.

This course provides an overview of the role of a supervisor and focuses on ensuring high quality services. We also recommend delegates attend the “Conducting IPS Supervisions” course which focuses on the practicalities of how to carry out supervisions with employment specialists.

The training will cover:

  • The key success factors in IPS
  • Roles and responsibilities of the IPS supervisor
  • Using a strengths-based approach in IPS
  • Coaching & supervision of employment specialists
  • Managing difficult conversations
  • Quality & performance management
  • Partnership working

“[The trainers] were both clearly very knowledgeable on both IPS and leadership. I feel inspired now to go on and take lots of things forward from their training”.

“The part of the training experience that I found most helpful was Learning about supervision, handling difficult conversations, field mentoring & the resources shared. Also loved hearing others thoughts on things and how I can adapt these into my role”

“Thoroughly enjoyed it. Who said Zoom meetings couldn’t be fun!?”
