There are two reasons to create an e-learning version of this training. The first is to accommodate the shift-based scheduling of direct care staff. We realize that it is difficult to dedicate a solid 2 – 3 hours of time in this role. The e-learning structure allows staff to complete the full training over the course of a week at moments that are convenient for them.
The second reason for the e-learning version is to provide an easily accessible entry-level learning space for people newer to the field. The e-learning structure provides the foundational values and beginning skill set to integrate permanency throughout an organization.
Audience: Staff in residential and group care. Early learners in permanency and relational family work.
Time: The total time is 2.5 hours. The training is comprised of 3 courses.
Each course is presented in mini sessions [EG: 5 – 10 min], so participants can complete individual sessions and pause, complete course by course, or complete the full training at once.
Course 1: Permanency: What is it and why is it so important? Total: 20 minutes
Course 2: 10 Beliefs that guide the work. Total: 2 hours
Course 3: Preparing for your essential role. Total: 10 minutes
