As part of UMHAN membership, mentors and mental health advisors must meet CPD and supervision requirements.
Here is a brief summary of our requirements, but it is your responsibility to make sure you read the full guide. This can be downloaded below.
- Both full-time and part-time workers have to complete 30hrs of CPD per year, across 6 different types of activities (i.e. training, giving lectures, speaking at UMHAN meetings)
- If you work full-time AND during the summer (35 hours or more per week) we require a minimum of 1.5 hours recorded group or individual supervision per month, totalling 18 hours per annum
- If you work part-time AND during the summer (less than 35 hours per week) we require a minimum of 1 hour recorded group or individual supervision per month, totalling 12 hours per annum
- If you only work term-time, please ask your supervisor to write a short letter - signed and scanned - saying that you do not see students over the summer. This also means that you will not have to record any supervision during the summer months (9 hours of supervision in total per annum).
UMHAN has provided the following downloadable templates for mentors and mental health advisors to use while recording CPD and supervision. Click below to download the files.
