Frontline Supervisors (FLS) supervise and manage the direct services provided to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and the professionals who support them. FLS often take on a multitude of supervisory roles such as hiring, firing, training, supervising, planning and evaluation, working with families, etc.
Many times FLS are promoted from the position of Direct Support Professional and have succeeded in fulfilling the Core Competencies and understand the Code of Ethics. However, taking on the role of supervisor means not just participating in the Core Competencies, but evaluating the DSPs they supervise based on these sets of guidelines.
FLS need to understand and apply them in a different manner.
The Regional Centers for Workforce Transformation provides a substantial resource library to assist FLS with developing their professional skills and helping them learn how to apply the Code of Ethics, and Core Competencies from a supervisory standpoint.
