Rita Burceva

Abstract


The aim of the research is to determine the suitability and benefits of using supervision as a support tool in the professional activity of pedagogues – career counsellors in Latvia. Supervision is a globally recognised employee training and support tool that provides the possibility of reflecting on their professional experience, analysing their activity and finding some ways for their improvement. The paper provides theoretical grounds for the use of supervision; it also describes the conducted empirical research, whose data have been processed using the SPSS software.  The research allows us drawing conclusions regarding the needs of pedagogues – career counsellors and their professional and personal benefits following their participation in the supervisions organised at the beginning of 2018 within the framework of the ESF project “Career Support for Comprehensive and Professional Schools”. The respondents’ attitude to supervisions as a support tool was established. This research has a practical application and its results can be used in the organisation of content and process of any future supervisions.
