  Training Systems:

The National Child Welfare Resource Center for Organizational Improvement (NRCOI) provides T/TA to public State and Tribal child welfare agencies on training systems.

We help agency administrators and training managers think about their training system as a management tool that supports the work and mission of the agency, sustains organizational improvements and assures that personnel at every level of the agency have needed values, attitudes, and skills. An effective training system should, at minimum, support and link with the agency’s:

bullet Practice Model
bullet Supervisors
bullet Management and other internal systems, such as policy, QA and case reviews
bullet External Partners

We provide tools and T/TA that help agencies assess their training system. We also work with agencies as they develop curricula for supervisors, managers and administrators to build supervisory skills, support a skilled and stable workforce and achieve better outcomes for children and their families.

We continue to work with national child welfare and social work organizations, States, counties, and institutions of higher education to collect and share best practices around training tools, curriculum development and worker retention and recruitment. Additionally we provide T/TA to States and Tribes on workforce issues such as workload and worker safety.
