  About the Network:

The Peer Training Network was sponsored by the National Child Welfare Resource Center for Organizational Improvement (NRCOI), a Service of the Children's Bureau, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The Peer Training Network was comprised of people who were engaged in some aspect of child welfare training—some members are trainers, some are curriculum writers, some manage training, some are academics—many did a little bit of everything. Network participants were folks interested in learning from each other, sharing ideas and materials, and joining discussions on various child welfare training topics.

This network offered many opportunities for participants to connect with child training experts across the country who shared an interest in improving the lives of children and families through effective training.

As part of the Peer Training Network, the NRCOI sponsored a quarterly webinar series focusing on child welfare training.Participants discussed such topics as new hire training models, supervisory training curricula, training evaluation approaches and other 'hot training topics' suggested by participants, such as pay rates, trainer conduct policies and knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs). What KSAs do new workers need to bring to the job? What must be covered in new worker training and what can be covered later?
