Child Welfare Academy Home

Welcome to the Child Welfare Academy

Our website is intended to serve several functions - to let you know who we are, how we're doing, when we offer classroom training and how to access additional training. There is never enough time or resources for classroom training, therefore, we offer many topics and methods to augment your knowledge, skills and development. On the right side of this page you will see a menu of options. The "Training Calendar" shows the dates of SKILS, Supervisor, and SSA core training, along with the online registration form. Courses lists our regularly scheduled classes, their descriptions and access to the course agenda by clicking on the course name.

Next are a series of learning opportunities - micro-learning, webinars, podcasts, and available online courses. The rest of the links on the right are resource pages specific to special topics relating to child welfare. Additionally, we have included the bi-annual reports we compile for the Office of Children's Services, information about Staff Members, and how to contact us. Please let us know how we can make the CWA website more helpful, it's all about staff development!
