Child Welfare Workforce Development and Workplace Enhancement Institute: Knowledge Development and Application: Meeting Report
- The Institute received very high ratings from participants: thanks to the contributions of the planning committee; excellent workshops by presenters; the opportunity for focused discussion through the synthesis groups; and the dedication, expertise, and enthusiasm of the attendees.
- The representation of federal staff, T&TA staff, and child welfare training grantees was valuable and confirmed CB's interest in addressing workforce issues. It is anticipated that the work of grantees discussed at the Workforce Institute will be disseminated by the T&TA network to States, courts, and tribes and to the field in general.
- The synthesis groups provided an opportunity for attendees to think critically about workforce-related issues, to discuss possible solutions to workforce challenges and to make recommendations to the field. The synthesis groups' recommendations were used to produce this report.
