Register now: Child Welfare Competencies in Action
(Thursday, July 30, 2015 at 1 pm ET)
This webinar will share the conceptual framework, essential components and functions of competency-based training systems.  Presenters will explain how the Ohio Child Welfare Training Program uses competencies as the cornerstone of its training system and has evolved to use them in conjunction with core learning objectives and training transfer indicators to measure training effectiveness and support supervisors in encouraging transfer of learning.

NCWWI has developed a comprehensive Workforce Development Framework (WDF) to support and sustain workforce development efforts across the country. The WDF offers the key steps in the assessment and planning process, and the potential strategies and activities of effective workforce development, including the core components and competencies needed to fully realize and implement the framework.


If you and your team would like to learn more about the WDF and how you can use it in your work, as well as explore the relevant resources available through MyNCWWI, please contact us for a tailored webinar session.

Leadership Coaching Toolkit for Supervisors

The Leadership Academy for Supervisors (LAS) is an online training program supported by the U.S. Children's Bureau and available free of charge. Since 2009, the LAS has been delivered nationally through self-directed learning, while ten jurisdictions -  including Alabama, Albany County (New York), Colorado, Hawaii, Indiana, Illinois, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Tennessee - have also implemented the LAS in an agency-coordinated approach. Between 2014-2018, our 13 University Partnership jurisdictions are also able to receive technical assistance in implementing the LAS.  


The design of the LAS allows individual jurisdictions to offer live, web-based and/or face-to-face Learning Network sessions (LASLNs) and choose to include a coaching component using local resources to support participants and increase the transfer of learning. The LAS Coaching Toolkit is designed to assist coaches for the LAS, but its session outlines, guides, plans, sample questions and other templates may be useful for agencies implementing coaching in other areas as well.
