Brief Description

Charting the Course Towards Permanency for Children in Pennsylvania (CTC) is designed to provide child welfare professionals with fundamental information related to the awareness, knowledge, and understanding of child welfare-related concepts. The series educates participants about the skills needed to provide strengths-based and solution-focused family-driven individualized services to children, youth, and families involved with the child welfare system. The entire series requires 120 hours of in-classroom work and 6 hours of online Transfer of Learning (TOL) work. This course can be used to educate child welfare professionals so they can obtain any direct service worker certification that may be required by their state, as it is in Pennsylvania.

  • Learn fundamental information related to the awareness, knowledge, and understanding of child welfare-related concepts
  • Acquire skills needed to provide quality strengths-based and solution-focused family-driven individualized services to children, youth, and families involved with the child welfare system
