2 CYC-Net.org  Needs 42,000 to operate.  To donate:   Your students use it-ask your program to support it.

3 Developing A National Agenda for Action Toward Professional Regulation for Child and Youth Care Practice 2010

4 Educational Accreditation-Why?  Standards plus Audit  Reveal weakness, improve, advise public of a thoughtful overall standard.  Requires INTERNAL motivation  Employers will reduce need for training expense  Employers want to affect curriculum  Edu Programs NEED placements  Students who work for accredited agencies will value accredited Edu programs  Ease of transfer assessment  Collective “power ” of defining standards and arguing for resources

5 Overview-Accreditation Model  Self-Study, External Review, and Accreditation Body each consider the following areas:  Program Inputs  Program Operation (Processes)  Program Outcomes  Developmental Plan  Chart pg. 3

6 Outcomes  General Outcomes –expectations of students upon graduation  Competency Measures-testing/demonstrations/ portfolios etc. that assess student outcomes  Outcome Measures-assessment used post graduation to assess effectiveness of program toward achieving it’s stated general outcomes

7 Task Force Recommendation  Create a Founding Board to incorporate an organization responsible for Educational Accreditation. The founding board will consist of 8 members. Members will come from an equal representation of colleges and universities (at least one of which will have a graduate program) (6 educator members with regional representation from West, Atlantic, Central) and 2 professional members representing the CCCYCA. The Founding Board is charged with creating the initial by-laws for membership of the organization, governance structure (i.e. Board of Directors) incorporating and guiding the initial work of the organization.

8 Issues for the New Board and Membership to Decide On  Nomenclature, Definitions, Regional Variations  College vs. University  Competencies  Provincial EDU Ministry Program Review Timing  Curriculum Flexibility  Input, Process, Outcome Assessment and Balance  Implementation  Motivation, Fees, Institutional Response, Public/Private

9 Focus Groups  Preparing Diploma students for Degree-Dan and Jennifer  What skills are missing, diploma to degree?  How to work together?  Measuring Competence through Distance Learning-Gerard  How are programs assessing competence?  What is the on-off difference in assignments and skill development?  Inter-provincial Labour Mobility Agreements-Bruce  How easy/difficult is it for graduates to transfer in the labour force; what issues have arisen?  Scope of Practice and Curriculum-Heather  Narrow vs. Broad Scope and Curriculum implications  Competencies being used across Canada: Comparison—Carol
