Feedback Process Give a brief look at the current training for new social workers Explain why we want to revise core Explain the concept for the revision Briefly review the content Consider resource and capacity implications Give you a link to a survey where you can provide your feedback: https://www.surveymonkey. com/s/ContentOverview
Common Core What is it? What does it look like now? How is it working?
Current Common Core Developed 8-10 years ago (rolled out in 2005) 7 topics with standardized curricula and 14 topics with standardized learning objectives Doesn’t really train skill – mostly works on knowledge Topic based Meets federal and state requirements Meets evaluation goals (trainees do learn in class!) http://calswec.berkeley.edu/common-core-curricula-child-welfare-workers
7 Topics with Standardized Content Learning objectives, trainer tips, training content, powerpoint slides, etc. These are often referred to as phase 1 topics: – Framework for Child Welfare Practice – Child and Youth Development – Critical Thinking and Assessment – Child Maltreatment Identification 1 – Child Maltreatment Identification 2 – Family Engagement in Case Planning and Case Management – Permanency and Placement
14 Topics with Standardized Learning Objectives Regions develop curricula which must meet the identified learning objectives. These are often referred to as phase 2 topics: ICWA Intimate Partner Violence Introduction to Social Worker Safety / Time Management / Stress Management Supporting Educational Rights and Achievement Health Care Needs Court Procedures Basic Interviewing CWS Documentation for Use in the Legal System MEPA Substance Abuse CWS/CMS Values and Ethics Mental Health Child Welfare Practice in a Multicultural Environment
Why Revise Core? Improved flexibilityImproved learning experienceBetter use of technologyBetter reflect practice changes
Principles of the Revision Focus more on the skills beginning social workers need – clear out other content Train in ways that work for more social workers – include classes, on-the-job, and computer training Make sure content works for all counties Meet federal requirements (as outlined in the CFSR and the Program Improvement Plans completed by California in 2004 and 2009)
Common Core 3.0 Concept Link to practice Practice skills in the field Reinforce skills Divide content into practice blocks and link to actual social work activities Give basic content in the classroom or on the computer and then have on- the-job activities to practice new skills Come back after some experience on-the-job to refine skills
Common Core 3.0 Content is divided into 6 blocks Each block has 100 level online trainings and classroom training After the trainee completes the 100 level, there are on-the-job activities to complete for each block After the field activities, there is an additional class in each block called the 200 level
Practice-based training Training centers on 6 key practice blocks Training makes the classroom to field connection Multi-modal Online, classroom, and field learning Uses modality to make best use of training time Logical Sequence Each content block builds on the next Field work linked to classroom content 200 level ties it all together
