Conflict resolution

Despite the best planning and best of intentions, conflict can arise. Unresolved conflict can have a significant impact on placement satisfaction, reputation, and productivity. Conflict is best dealt with early and directly by the people involved. As a supervisor, if you perceive conflict developing intervene early and attempt to resolve the issue by identifying the facts, perceptions and expectations of both parties. If this is unsuccessful consider seeking the support of the education provider contact officer or re-allocating the student to a new supervisor.
