Workforce Development Framework

The Workforce Development Framework (WDF), developed by NCWWI in 2015, grew out of a comprehensive review of the workforce development literature across multiple professions in the public and private sectors. The WDF helps child welfare leaders understand best and promising workforce practices for developing and supporting a competent, committed, and diverse workforce, as well as an inclusive and welcoming workplace.

The NCWWI leadership competency framework reflects the multi-dimensional nature of the child welfare field and the corresponding complex and diverse body of knowledge and skills. It describes the approach and resource documents used as the basis for the NCWWI competency framework, and, for each competency, offers a definition and a proficiency ladder, with examples for each level.
