New Workforce Development Toolkit
The Workforce Development Planning & Assessment Tool Kit, produced by the National Child Welfare Workforce Institute, is a companion resource to the Workforce Development Framework (WDF). The toolkit applies the principles of the WDF to an agency setting and offers a comprehensive approach to creating a workforce development roadmap by guiding agencies through the following three steps:
- Introducing tools to systematically gather information about the agency’s current workforce strengths and gaps, as well as by assessing what influences the agency in its hiring practices
- Providing examples of strategies that help to close the gap between the agency’s current workforce and the workforce needed to support its mission
- Helping the agency put together an action plan
The Workforce Development Planning & Assessment Tool Kit is available at http://wdftoolkit.ncwwi.org/index.html.
