Coaching sessions are utilized to enhance a learner’s specific skill attainment in an identified area of practice. Coaching sessions are provided to Department of Children, Youth, and Families workforce to help workers attain specific skills pertinent to their daily work/practice in child welfare. Identified goals are created and progress towards those goals is measured by both the learner and the coach after each session.
Case Organization and Prioritization field based coaching topics include:
How to prioritize the daily work, including: using outlook, desk calendars, and reminders; prioritization of caseload activities, assessments and due dates for different programs; reassessing safety and updating safety assessments at pivotal points in the case.
Social Workers and Supervisors
How to request coaching sessions
Coaching sessions can be scheduled in 30 minute increments, depending on the topic being covered. Coaches are available to provide individual sessions or small group sessions (such as at unit meetings). Once a request is made, the Alliance Regional Education and Training Administrator (RETA) will assign a coach and scheduling will occur between the coach, the learner and the Supervisor/AA. Written feedback on each session will be provided by the coach to the learner and supervisor following the coaching session and the coaching session will be entered into LMS Maestro so the worker’s training record will reflect completed coaching.
