Transcript of Common Core 3.0 Stakeholder Overview

Common Core 3.0
California Common Core Training for New Social Workers Version 3.0
Impetus for Common Core Revision
While evaluation shows that trainees gain knowledge and skills about the topics in Common Core, new social workers need more help putting these topics together into skill-based social work practice with families. In an effort to address this concern, a statewide group embarked on a collaborative process to revise Common Core (we call it Common Core 3.0).
Shifting Modality
Beyond re-imagining the way social work practice is presented in core, the Common Core 3.0 concept also incorporates a wider range of training modalities, including on-line learning, classroom learning, and field learning. It will also include a range of materials to support transfer of learning and to carry the learning experience into the field with innovative tools including mobile learning applications.
Re-imagining Core Training
The new vision grounds training in social work practice. It starts by providing a foundation of concepts and key information that are interwoven throughout practice (e.g., teaming, ethics, federal and state laws) and then centers training on five key practice areas:
Service Planning
Monitoring and Adapting
The goal is a training system that will provide social workers with integrated practice skills in the 5 practice areas identified as key for delivering the best possible services to children, youth and families. Here is a closer look at the identified content:
Common Core For New Child Welfare Social Workers in California
The Common Core for new social workers was developed as part of the first CFSR / PIP process to address the need for standardized training
The PIP included two key requirements for Common Core
it must be statewide standardized training for all new social workers
it must be evaluated to show that it is effective
The first version of Common Core (version 1.0) launched in 2005
Common Core content is currently organized by key topic areas identified as priority topics for new social workers.
Topics with standardized learning objectives:
Intimate Partner Violence
Introduction to Social Worker Safety / Time Management / Stress Management
Supporting Educational Rights and Achievement
Health Care Needs
Court Procedures
Basic Interviewing
CWS Documentation for Use in the Legal System
Substance Abuse
Values and Ethics
Mental Health
Child Welfare Practice in a Multicultural Environment
This presentation provides information about revisions to new social worker training currently underway.

As we go through the slides you'll be reminded about the current training, review the reasons for the revision, learn about the proposed new model for training, and hear about the new content.

Let's get started by exploring the background and regulatory requirements for standardized training for new child welfare social workers in California.
Common Core Training for New Social Workers
There are 14 topics standardized only to the level of the learning objectives. For these topics, regions develop their own curricula which must meet the identified learning objectives.
There are 6 topics with standardized content (learning objectives, trainer tips, training content, powerpoint slides, etc.):
Framework for Child Welfare Practice
Child and Youth Development
Critical Thinking and Assessment
Child Maltreatment Identification (1 and 2)
Family Engagement in Case Planning and Case Management
Permanency and Placement
Why these practice areas?
These practice areas were identified because they incorporate concepts from the most significant practice innovations affecting child welfare in California:
the Katie A. Core Practice Model
the California Partners for Permanency project
Safety Organized Practice
Application opportunities
In addition to reorganizing training around practice areas, Common Core 3.0 will provide new social workers with opportunities to enhance classroom learning through application of concepts in the field.
100 Level Content
New social workers will start with a series of 100 level content courses for each practice area. This will provide the entry level knowledge social workers should have as soon as possible after hire.
200 Level Content
After some field experiences social workers will receive additional 200 level training providing more in-depth skill practice.
This means:
Shifting some knowledge-based content outside the classroom with online learning modalities
Linking online and classroom training by using knowledge based elearning modules to prepare trainees for skill based classroom modules
Using classroom time to focus on skill based training
Shifting some skill-based content outside the classroom with field learning
Planning for Evaluation of Common Core 3.0
Re-imagining core training includes re-thinking evaluation. Because developing an evaluation process is part of the development of Common Core 3.0, the group identified some key points for evaluation:
While knowledge tests will continue for select areas, the primary focus will be on evaluating key practice skills
Stakeholders and the revision planning group identified new social workers' skill acquisition in the area of accurate assessment of safety and risk and developing strength-based, achievable case plan activities grounded in assessment of strengths and needs as the first areas to evaluate
Let's take a look at the new concept.

Thank you for watching!
Following completion of 100 level content, social workers will be introduced to the field through 21 directed field experiences with field advisors to support field-based learning.
Field Activities
Where are we in the revision process?
We completed a stakeholder feedback process to finalize the content for CC3.0
CalSWEC developed the content for the assessment block in 2014
Regional training academies are developing content for the other blocks over the next two years
Curriculum vetting is occurring in January 2015
Piloting will start in April 2015
Common Core 3.0 will be fully implemented by the end of fiscal year 16-17

Over the next 2 years, CalSWEC, CDSS, training academies, and counties will be working together to prepare for CC3.0 implementation. This includes:
Building county capacity for field training
Building systems to support online learning and CC3.0 sequencing
Developing trainer knowledge and skills to support CC3.0
Getting ready for Common Core 3.0
Next Steps
Identify your next steps to prepare for CC3.0 implementation. Think about:
Who will serve as field advisors in your county?
How will you ensure new workers have access to identified field experiences?
How will you ensure new workers have protected time to complete elearning modules?
(* These eLearning modules must be completed before trainees take the associated classroom modules)
