There is a set of fundamental supervision and management knowledge and skills needed in order to be an effective supervisor. Whether on the job for two months or several years, these concepts should be regularly reviewed by a supervisor and their manager in order to achieve a high level of supervision.

Core 2.0

Supervisor Core 2.0

Starting in 2021, the OCWTP conducted a needs assessment to gather information from a variety of sources to identify needed revisions to the mandated Core training series. Several sources were used to inform the changes, including evaluations, environmental scans, literature reviews, CFSR and CPOE reviews, Citizen Review Panel Reports, curricula, and discussions with several other states. Most importantly, we listened to you—our learners. Through surveys and focus groups, we heard loud and clear that increased relevance, flexibility, and support to skill must be critical components of Core 2.0.

Core 2.0 is broken into modules to offer smaller, more digestible content, designed to be a blended offering of self-directed and instructor-led courses that can be taken virtually or in-person, and offers increased application, skill-building, and transfer-of-learning opportunities. 

Supervisor Core 2.0 courses are organized into two blocks. The blocks are natural groupings of topics that allow for a focused exploration of knowledge and skill in a particular area.

This block addresses the fundamental information and skills required for an effective supervisor and leader. Within this block, supervisors will learn how to provide quality administrative, educational, and supportive supervision, lead a diverse team, and practice with a trauma-informed lens. 

In this block, supervisors will take a deep dive into areas of child protection supervision. These courses apply a supervisory lens to the knowledge and skills your staff are learning in Caseworker Core.
