Utah s Professional Development Award is a national model among Early Childhood Professional Development systems. There has never been a more exciting time to begin a career in early care and education. New knowledge about the human brain indicates that the early years are a time of intense learning and can have a tremendous impact on a child s future. Research shows that professional training, education and continuing professional development is a critical aspect of a quality early childhood program. The early childhood caregiver s work is challenging and rewarding and can have a lasting influence on children, their families and society.

8 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AWARDS & CAREER LADDER What is Utah s Early Childhood Career Ladder and how do I receive a level? The Early Childhood Career Ladder primary focus is to increase the quality of care in early childhood settings and to provide ongoing education and training experience. The Career Ladder Program consists of ten Career Ladder Levels. Participants may complete the levels in any allowable order but must fulfill all requirements of the level option that is chosen. How can I hop on the Career Ladder? You begin with level 1 or you can also hop on Career Ladder, Level 4 with a Demonstrated Competency Certification, Level 9 with an eligible Associate Degree and Level 10 with an eligible Bachelor Degree. What is a Professional Development Award (PDA) and am I eligible? The Professional Development Award is an annual cash bonus that recognizes child care providers for their education, training and longevity in the field. Child care providers who have a level on the Career Ladder and meet the requirements of 10 hours of Career Ladder training per year and work at least 20 hours a week in an eligible child care setting for at least one year are eligible for the Professional Development Award. I need a Demonstrated Competency Certification (DCC) to receive level 4 what does that mean? A Demonstrated Competency Certification must include training, an observation and an assessment. An example of a Demonstrated Competency would be a CDA (Child Development Associate Credential) or Utah High School Skills Certification A & B. Check CCPDI s website for other approved Demonstrated Competency Certifications. When can I apply for a Professional Development Award? A provider can apply for the Professional Development Award once a year on their old Training & Longevity (TLS) date. After July the TLS date will be called their Anniversary date. PD Awards applications can be received within one week prior to the anniversary date, but MUST be submitted no later than May 30 th each year. A provider new to the field can apply for a PD Award after they have worked in an eligible child care program for at least one year. How do I find out what my Anniversary is and will it ever change? The Anniversary date is referred to as the Training and Longevity date on the old Career Ladder system. The anniversary date will always be the first of a month. The anniversary date will not change from year to year unless a provider leaves the field and then returns and requests a PD Award. I missed my Anniversary can I still apply for a Professional Development Award? An eligible provider can receive one PD Award each fiscal year (July 1-June 30). However, all PD Award requests MUST be submitted no later than May 30 of each year. If a provider misses this deadline, then they will need to wait until their anniversary date comes again. 7

9 Can college credits be used to earn a level on the Career Ladder? Once a Level 4 is earned using a Demonstrated Competency Certification, individual early childhood college credits can be used to advance on Levels 5-8. Individual college credits must have been completed within the past 5 years of application. Can I use a college degree to earn a level on the Career Ladder? An Associate s or Bachelor s degree in early childhood (or a related field with at least 15 early childhood credits) can be used to earn Levels 9 or 10 respectively without earning any lower Career Ladder levels. An Associate s or Bachelor s degree in an unrelated field can be used to earn Levels 9 or 10, but only after Level 8 is earned. If a degree is more than five years old, a current resume highlighting at least 75% of time spent in the field since the degree date is required. If you have not worked at least 75% of time in the field since your degree date, please contact CCPDI for additional information. Do Career Ladder Classes expire? Yes, Career Ladder classes do expire after 5 years. Some Career Ladder classes have a refresher option. Please contact your local CCR&R to find out more information about this option. How do I find out what Career Ladder Classes are available in my area? You can access Utah s Caregiver Registry to find out which classes are coming up, see the classes that you are registered for, view your transcript and see where you are on the Career Ladder. The Caregiver Registry s website is careaboutchildcare.utah.gov. You will need a username and password to view your profile, if you don t know your username and password and for any other questions, please contact the CCR&R agency in your area or CCPDI. Are there scholarships available to help me with the cost of my professional development? Yes, Scholarships are currently available to help offset the cost of obtaining and renewing a CDA and National Administrators Credential (NAC). Check CCPDI website for a listing of any other available scholarships. If my program closes for a few weeks for vacation, does that mean that I am not eligible for a PDA? No, as long as the program is open at some point during every month (not exceeding 4 weeks off) you are eligible for the PDA. What do I do if I have taken more than four weeks of continuous leave? Caregivers who take anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks of leave, and are on FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act), are eligible for a consideration for continuous employment. Documentation will be requested to confirm FMLA eligibility. Can I participate in the Career Ladder if I am not eligible for a Professional Development Award? Yes; anyone who is interested, may take Career Ladder and Endorsement courses, and be awarded a certificate of completion for them. Please note, there is no money attached to these awards. 8
