Advanced Job Skills Training Project. Annual Report: Innovations in Protective Services.
This annual report of the Advanced Job Skills Training (AJST) Project describes the methodology used to develop competency-based training for child protective services (CPS) specialists who are in their first 24 months of employment. The project's steering committee determined that AJST was an inappropriate point to begin developing CPS specialists skills and agreed to revise Basic Job Skills Training (BJST), to redefine the time spent in the BJST classroom, and to increase the role of the CPS supervisor in measuring the competency of the CPS specialist during the first 24 months of employment. In the former BJST classes, new CPS specialists spent three weeks at a centralized training center. This requirement has been eliminated. The project identified the skills required for tasks performed by CPS specialists and revised the training curriculum accordingly. Plans are being made to conduct a pilot test of the revised curriculum in two DHS administrative regions. A training evaluation form and the agenda of the CPS BJST are appended. (RH)
