Peer Supervision for the Helping Professional

By Dr. Timothy Hsi
Wednesday, January 27/Thursday, January 28, 2020

Traditionally, practitioners from the helping professions are required to receive clinical supervision form a senior practitioner/supervisor as part of their professional development.  However, as career practice in much of the Asia Pacific region is still in its early stages of development, there are currently very few qualified career supervisors within the community.  Until this changes, a highly effective alternative is for career practitioners to engage in peer supervision as part of their professional development.  This approach harnesses the power of social learning (Bandura, 1971) which proposes that new behaviors can be acquired by observing and emulating others.  Dr. Timothy Hsi will explain the process of peer supervision and the benefit for organizations.

An Evidence-based Review of the Singapore Career Development Standards

By Jeremiah Wong
Recorded on October 21, 2020

Career Practitioners around the world constantly seek new frontiers of learning and practice so that we are useful and relevant to our clients’ career needs. Our work, identity and growth are guided by professional standards, competencies and credentialing policies either locally or internationally. In 2018, Singapore had launched its own career practitioner competency and credentialing framework – dubbed the Workforce Singapore Career Development Framework (or WSG CDF). Since launch, it has trained and supported local career practitioners in the education, union, public employment and career services sector. In this webinar, we will shed insights and learnings on what might be the first local, postgraduate qualitative study on career practitioner skills policy, its impact and support for pre-existing and new career practitioners at the CDF’s introduction. Factors covered in this study includes skills acquisition, skills utilisation, skills measurement at the workplace, continuous professional development and professional recognition with international models.
