[Extract] Notwithstanding a question regarding the extent to which individuals in the career development field actively engage in supervision or, indeed, self-supervision or self-monitoring, there should be some consideration given to the constructive potential of supervision and self-supervision to act as frameworks for reflective practice. The challenge for the profession lies in how to develop systems of professional supervision in terms of practitioner education and training (e.g., initial degree qualifications), and with respect to the requirements for ongoing professional development in which supervision is formally encouraged and recognised—if not mandated—by the Career Industry Council of Australia.
