CPD test, evaluation and monitoring forms
- Case study test exercise 1 – At a university a group of male students posted a (private) Facebook conversation based on their views of women – fellow students. Photos were posted with comments as to their sexual capacity and fantasy congress. It was clearly demeaning, hurtful and misogynist against those women students. It also endorsed gendered violence.
- Case study test exercise 2 – A recently appointed member of staff repeatedly fails to attend group supervision sessions and is constantly late. They cannot cover their work as contracted, but enlist cover from colleagues. When confronted they complain that this is because their manager is antagonistic and unheeding of their personal problems. This threatens to be come a complaint against the supervisor, as well as a matter of competence. Both parties contemplate a tribunal.
