Effective remote supervision is achieved through good planning and the decision-making. A supervisor should be able to identify hazards, know their personal strengths and limitations as well as understanding how group experience and dynamics as well as the impact of different types of supervision on a group. Types of remote supervision have various advantages and disadvantages and choosing the best one is dependent on the group, terrain, and weather. In this workshop the different options a supervisor has and the factors which affect the decision to use a particular type are discussed. The workshop is highly interactive and based around discussions and indoor scenarios and map exercises.
This session will take place on-site at Derwent Hill outdoor centre.
