Development of a Training Plan for DCW Juvenile Service Unit Workers.
Human Resources Research Organization, Fort Knox, KY. Div. 2.; Kentucky State Dept. of Child Welfare, Frankfort.
A study was conducted to ascertain the job requirements and training needs of juvenile service unit workers. A training needs assessment inventory questionnaire was mailed to all juvenile service unit workers in the Kentucky Department of Child Welfare (DCW). Data from 146 questionnaires were analyzed to provide job descriptive information, which was used to identify job requirements, training needs, and training priorities of social workers and juvenile counselors. Results of the study showed that the respondents represented eleven different job classifications categories covering four basic job positions. A total of 163 social worker job requirements and 142 juvenile counselor job requirements were identified as critical to successful job performance. Interviewing, developing treatment goals or plans, and providing protective services to children neglected or abused were areas of training needs given priority. From the lists of training priorities identified for juvenile service unit workers, a training plan was developed for implementation by the Staff Development and Training Unit of DCW. (JH)
