What is CSP and Who is it for?

The Career Supervision Programme (CSP) is a blended learning programme which combines 3 days sessions with interactive online study. CSP provides learners with better understanding of the complexity of the role of clinical career supervisor. Learners will gain greater insights on how to apply supervisory strategies, supervision models, evaluation processes and demonstrate and feedback models, which provide frameworks to guide learners in their supervisory journey with your supervisees.


The 3 competencies  of the Career Supervision Programme are:


  1. Supervise career development practitioners

  2. Manage quality of career services

  3. Evaluate ethical, legal and professional issues in education and career advisory

There are two pathways to attain the Career Supervision Programme (CSP).


a. Training and Assessment Pathway: Participant will undergo self-paced e-learning followed by a 3-day classroom-based training. Participant will attain the qualification if they are assessed competent.


b. Assessment-Only Pathway (AOP): The AOP recognises an individual’s knowledge and skills acquired through prior learning and work experience.
