NCWWI Announces Continued CB Funding

In 2013, the Children's Bureau awarded the National Child Welfare Workforce Institute (NCWWI) $21.2 million to continue its work on workforce development. For the next 5 years, NCWWI will lead the Center of Excellence on Workforce and Leadership Development within the Bureau's Training and Technical Assistance Network. In this new role, NCWWI will look to serve and work with the field through more intensive and focused approaches.

NCWWI's recent issue of National eUpdate shares some specific information about its new direction, including a strengthened vision statement, explanation of its enhanced purpose, and a list of the six partner institutions that it now comprises. The article also details NCWWI's dynamic future goals and activities, which include:

  • Providing leadership development to child welfare agency staff (supervisors, middle managers, and directors) and schools of social work deans, directors, and chairs
  • Implementing university-agency partnerships to build the capacity of the child welfare workforce
  • Building evidence of best practices in workforce development
