Practice framework

Last updated: 07/08/2023


Supervision is a reciprocal relationship between a supervisor and supervisee that can be likened to te ao Māori concept of tuakana–teina. Supervision should hold kaimahi ora at the centre and emphasise critical reflection, ethical practice and learning in relation to: 

  • working with tamariki, rangatahi and whānau Māori
  • working with cultures different from our own
  • working with all tamariki, rangatahi, whānau, caregivers, and victims of offending
  • working within the organisational practice approach.
