The Universe of Child Welfare Competencies

The "Universe of Competencies" is Ohio's comprehensive listing of all the knowledge and skills required for child welfare staff to do their jobs. This "Universe" is the essential driving force behind the OCWTP's comprehensive, competency-based inservice training (CCBIT) system.  

The competencies are the criteria used to assess individual training needs, from which aggregate training needs for an agency, county, region, or the whole state are determined. In addition, the competencies guide the development of all of the OCWTP's training courses and curriculum content and determine what training expertise are needed in the OCWTP's trainer pool.
