CalSWEC, with the support of the State of California, Regional Training Academies,
and Community Partners engaged in a large-scale revision of the Common Core training
materials for new Child Welfare Social Workers and Supervisors. The training format
includes classroom learning, eLearning, and Field Activities to provide a variety
of learning modalities and transfer of learning opportunities.
As with any recently implemented initiative, familiarizing oneself with the basic
facts and tenets of RFA will be the first step. This toolkit provides a number of
documents that will assist you in understanding RFA, articulating the benefits to
children and families and becoming familiar with the legislative underpinnings.
"Serving Those Who Serve Others"
The mission of the Central California Training Academy (CCTA) is to enhance the ability
of staff in public social services and child welfare agencies to protect children
and to prevent placement whenever possible.
Through the Academy, child welfare workers will have greater access to current and
state-of-the-art child welfare practices, thereby leading to more competent workers
in the field.
