Supervision is a critical part of ensuring good practice for occupational therapists. It enables professional growth and development. Gaining access to supervision for some occupational therapists has been challenging so the OTA Supervision Program will enable better access and confidence for all involved
Carol McKinstry | National President, OTA
A great step towards re-normalising supervision in practice!

Good Supervision leads to results
The foundational content of the OTA Supervision Program is the Occupational Therapy Australia’s Professional Supervision Framework (2019). A strong supervisory team that contributes to a positive work environment and enables employees to be and feel successful, can provide your organisation with a competitive advantage in attracting and retaining talented employees.
When staff participate in this flexible learning approach, organisations will reap the benefits of improved service delivery, an advantage in recruitment and retention, as well as increased workforce well-being.
