The Workforce Development Framework (WDF) can guide agency leaders to improve the health of their child welfare workforce. With its defined process and attention to all of the components, the WDF provides the foundation and structure to achieve workforce excellence.
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.
