4 INTRODUCTION The Ohio Child Welfare Training Program promotes the delivery of high quality, culturally responsive, family-centered services to children who have experienced or are at risk of abuse, neglect, or dependency, and their families. We provide competency-based training, primarily to the public agency professionals, caregivers, and adoptive parents who serve them. We collaborate with other service providers to promote the delivery of competency-based training. We advocate for public policy and practice standards that reflect best child welfare practice. The Ohio Child Welfare Training Program is a cooperative effort of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, the Public Children Services Association of Ohio, the Institute for Human Services, and the eight Regional Training Centers. Funding for the program is provided by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. The Ohio Child Welfare Training Program is a model program that includes these essential elements: Utilization of a Universe of Competencies Competencies are statements of knowledge, skills, and values required for workers to do their jobs. Use of an Individual Training Needs Assessment Instrument Trainers must have the appropriate course content knowledge, the necessary adult training skills, and the ability to promote family-centered, culturally competent practice. Development of Job Related Training Content Training content relevance is assured by using our Universe of Competencies as the guide to curriculum development. The Utilization of Transfer of Learning Activities Transfer of learning activities promote the effective and continuing application by trainees to their jobs of the knowledge and skills gained in training. A Statewide System for the Delivery of Training Training is developed and delivered based upon data gathered from ongoing training needs assessments of workers in each region. Training is provided locally through eight Regional Training Centers, located in the following counties: Athens (Southeast) Cuyahoga (North Central) Franklin (Central) Greene (Western) Guernsey (East Central) Clermont (Southwest) Lucas (Northwest) Summit (Northeast) 3

36 The 15 Minute Rule It is the policy of the Ohio Child Welfare Training Program that participants only receive credit for training if they attend a workshop in its entirety and complete an evaluation form at the conclusion of the training session. Any participant who misses more than 15 minutes of the workshop, whether for personal or professional reasons, will not receive a training certificate. Therefore, please allow ample travel time for possible traffic and construction delays, and turn cell phones and pagers off or on silent mode and return calls during break, as any time spent outside the classroom counts toward the 15 minute rule. Partial credit cannot be given for a workshop that has not been attended in its entirety. PLEASE don t be a NO-SHOW! If you have registered for a workshop but will be unable to attend, please notify the contact person for that training session as soon as possible. REMINDER!!! Children are not permitted in workshops, due to the nature of the material being discussed, and cannot be in the building while training is being conducted. Child care is not provided. 35

37 Concerned about traveling? Use the Information Number: In the event of inclement weather, this telephone number will provide you information regarding training, and it will be updated and available when agency offices are closed. We ask trainers to inform us by 7:00 a.m. the day of the training if they will be unable to present their workshop that day. The information line will be updated at that time. 36
