You can't set permission to anything smaller than SPListItem which means you can't grant permissions to columns using OOTB SharePoint.

However you can use Javascript tools like Dynamic Forms to specify which columns can be edit by whome.

For your second point you could simply create task lists for each department, specify unique permissions for those lists and have a group of supervisor which can read all tasks.

  • thanks Andreas . could you give me step by step guide for the first point – abdulrahman Jun 14 '15 at 8:18
