The Ohio Child Welfare Training Program (OCWTP) has a pool of approximately 150 highly skilled trainers who have content knowledge and practice experience in the competency areas they train, have well-developed training skills, and understand the field of child welfare.
The OCWTP recruits trainers who can meet the identified training needs of child welfare staff, foster caregivers, and adoptive families.
Trainers are independent contractors hired for individual training sessions by one of eight Regional Training Centers.
As frontline representatives of the OCWTP, trainers embrace the OCWTP Guiding Principles and Mission Statement.
Furthermore, workshops reflect best practice, best available research, and child welfare values. In order to maximize the learning experience, trainers deliver content using principles of adult learning theory including transfer of learning strategies.
Trainers deliver content in a variety of ways; However, in-class workshops are the most common method.
