Graduate Support and Supervision

Soaring Health has been likened to a launchpad for ambitious allied health graduates who wish to use and grow their knowledge and skills in an environment dedicated to clinical excellence. Our dedicated graduate support and supervision program provides structured activities to accelerate beginning practitioners’ career progression. These activities contribute a total of 80 CPD hours annually and are broken down into 3 categories: 

1. Peer Support Program

The peer support program facilitates weekly intra-disciplinary meetings for health professionals in their first 2 years of practice. It takes place in a collaborative environment where discussions revolve around case scenarios, treatment planning, functional goal setting and work-life balance as a health professional.

2. Presentations, Tutorials & Workshops

Weekly workshops, tutorials and presentations are presented to Soaring Health practitioners and therapists to ensure continuous education and implementation of the latest innovations in science and health. Previous topics have included:

  • Introduction to sensory processing and sensory modulation
  • Assistive Technology (AT) and therapeutic supports
  • Managing challenging behaviours associated with ASD and ADHD
  • Graduate anxiety and dealing with workplace stress
  • Key sign language
  • Collaboration in a multi-modal clinic
  • Identifying childhood abuse
  • The report writing process and improved outcomes
  • Living with disability

3. Supervision

Following graduation from university, supervision is not generally a requirement by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA). Soaring Health young graduates are provided with additional weekly supervision with an experienced health professional. External supervisors and associate academics are commonly employed for the purpose of supervising young graduates at Soaring Health. These weekly supervision sessions are an integral part of graduates’ growth and progression towards becoming young leaders in community health.
