The RJC Case Supervisor Registration Framework

The Framework sets out how people providing case supervision to restorative practitioners working within the criminal justice field should work. It puts the values of restoration, impartiality, safety and empowerment at the heart of case supervision. The Framework is broken into seven performance indicators with each indicator relating to a specific aspect of case supervision:

  • Training, skills and experience
  • Providing safe and responsive supervision
  • Understanding and applying restorative values, principles and good practice
  • Managing risk throughout a restorative process
  • Supporting practitioners to develop
  • Supporting the quality assurance process
  • Maintaining professional standards

Each indicator consists of a number of criteria which outline the requirements in terms of skills, knowledge and application. Applicants are required to demonstrate throughout the assessment process how they meet each of the criteria.

The Registration Process

To assess your practice against the Registered Case Supervisor Framework, you will be required to provide a range of evidence to demonstrate how each indicator is being met. Your evidence will be gathered through the following methods:

Practitioner Portfolio Record

Assessor Professional Discussion

Case Supervisor Code of Practice

Once you have gathered your evidence, you will need to submit your portfolio for assessment. Your assessor will review the documentation provided and may contact you to request additional evidence. Once the initial assessment is completed, your assessor will invite you to arrange a suitable time to discuss the evidence provided.

Once the assessment process is completed, your assessor will provide you with feedback on whether your application for registration has been successful. If you are awarded Registered status, you will be added to our Case Supervisor Register and you will receive your Registered Case Supervisor certificate and logos.
