Meiny Erarsmus, Occupational Therapist, APM Workcare.

I wish I had done this course sooner. Michelle is a wealth of knowledge and was so well organised. I also really enjoyed the zoom breakout rooms and getting to know other Clinicians all over NZ.

Lauren Irvine, Occupational Therapist, Fit For Work.

This course provided so much value both professionally and personally. Zoom was great (meant I could attend!) and still very interactive. Would highly recommend course to anyone looking for further learning in the supervision space.
