    Increasing complexity together with undetermined duties and functions demand from professionals working in educational institutions to be highly qualified, flexible, professional and competent. Maintaining the highest working standards is achieved only by following the latest discoveries and prioritising professional development. One of the methods that influences the level of quality and personal growth of the professional working in the institution is the so called Peer Supervision. Peer Supervision is a way of Supervision and it comes in many forms. Typically, colleagues in pairs or smaller groups provide Supervision to each other without an external supervisor. In the theoretical part Peer Supervision, its implementation in an organization and various models of it are presented. The way to increase its implementation in our organisations is shown. Studies performed in Slovenia and elsewhere have shown that Peer Supervision encourages acquiring and broads key competences, which are today expected from the management and co-workers in organisations and are usually required even before hiring. The empirical part was done with the use of the qualitative method. A target sample was selected that included five participants of the Peer Supervision process over the course of two years. The purpose was to establish how participants perceive their professional development, what competencies they acquired and whether they need them at the workplace. The findings are presented in three sets that cover professional development and personal growth, perception of newly acquired competences through Peer Supervision and competences needed at the workplace, and working conditions in Peer Supervision group. Based on this sets, a theory valid only for this sample is developed. This theoretical findings require further research.
