About the Child Welfare In-Service Training Program

CalSWEC's Child Welfare In-Service Trainingn Program, formerly known as the Regional Training Academy Coordination Project, is a statewide collaborative for in-service training and continuing professional education of public child welfare staff. It was initiated in 1997 through a contract with the California Department of Social Services (CDSS).

Statewide Training and Education Committee (STEC)

STEC sets standards for statewide public child welfare training and coordinates their implementation with CalSWEC's In-Service Training Partners.  Here you will find meeting information, key documents, and information on subcommittees such as the Macro Evaluation Team and the Content Development Oversight Group.

Fairness and Equity Issues in Child Welfare Training

The Regional Training Academy Coordination Project promotes statewide efforts to develop and implement effective training strategies that address inequities in the child welfare system based on race, ethnicity, and other factors.

Evidence-Based Practice

CalSWEC works with many partners to support the effective implementation of evidence-based practices, as well as building evidence for new practices. This includes co-sponsoring Symposia on Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) and supporting the development of Implementation Toolkits.
