Leadership Academy Training for Supervisors and Middle Managers
With the goal of building the capacity of the nation's child welfare workforce, the National Child Welfare Workforce Institute (NCWWI), a member of the Children's Bureau Training and Technical Assistance Network, has developed leadership training consisting of two components: a Leadership Academy for Supervisors (LAS) and a Leadership Academy for Middle Managers (LAMM).
The LAS offers extensive online training to supervisors in public, private, and Tribal child welfare agencies. Each web-based training module is self-paced and includes learning activities focused on adult learning, leadership principles, and succession planning. The Introductory Module, which is the first of six, will be available online in September 2009.
The LAMM, which was created for mid-level managers, will take place over 5 years beginning in 2009. Each participant will take part in a 5-day residential training, followed by online and teleconference peer networking. Topics such as leadership, workforce and professional development, and succession planning are included in the LAMM training.
More information, including enrollment material, may be found on the NCWWI website.
