Our Kids’ Talent Development System
The primary goal of the Our Kids’ Talent Development System (TDS) is to develop child welfare professionals and caregivers who are highly competent, self-confident, motivated, and equipped to realize their full potential. To achieve this goal, Our Kids supports all child welfare partners in embracing a 'learning organization' mindset focused on continuously improving and developing its frontline, supervisory, and management/leadership professionals to improve safety, permanency and well-being outcomes for children and families in the system of care.
The TDS will comprehensively and strategically approach talent selection and development to ensure that child welfare professionals have the values, attitudes and skills required and that they are supported in implementing best and/or evidence-based practices. All learning activities will be competency-based, practice-driven and culturally grounded. The curricula will provide participants the knowledge, skills and values of the best in child welfare practice and research.
