bullet

For information regarding the Management Institute for Head Start, please click this link. July 22-July 26, 2019 in San Francisco.

 

Basic Skills 1, June 24-28, 2019.  This Institute is for entry-level Family Workers and is based on the 8 Goals and the associated Relationship-Based Competencies from ACF-IM-HS-12-05. Half of the goals/RBCs are covered in Basic Skills 1, the other half in Basic Skills 2.

Summer Institutes provide intensive training in applying
social work theory and using social work practices for

family development in Head Start programs.

Location: All Institutes are at the California State University downtown Oakland campus at 10th and Broadway, Temescal Room.

Info: There are two types of Family Development and Case Management classes based on the PFCE Framework. The first type is Basic Skills 1 and Basic Skills 2 and they take place in June. The other is the Summer Institute for Management, which is in July. As new performance standards come out, we will include them.

  1. Basic Skills 1. June 24-28. This is for Family Workers and is based on the Goals and the associated Relationship-Based Competencies from ACF-IM-HS-12-05. Half of the goals/RBCs are covered in Basic 1, the other half in Basic 2 which will take place at a later date.

  2. Downloads on this page include:
    (1) ACF-IM-HS-12-05 describing the 8 goals and the Relationship-Based Competencies.
    (2) How the RBCs are divided between Basic Skills 1 and 2 (forthcoming)
    (3) The Family Development Certificate from California State University at East Bay, which is Basic Skills 1 and 2 plus two homework courses. The four courses are 3 credits each, so the certificate is 12 credits. You do NOT have to be enrolled in the certificate program to take Basic Skills.
    (4) Ideas for putting Family Development into your T&TA plan.  

The new Parent, Family Community Engagement (PFCE) framework requires HUGE changes for how Head Start family workers assist families. Our courses cover all of the Relationship Based Competencies in ACF-IM-HS-12-05. The Office of Head Start eventually wants each local program to develop their in-house training capacity. Sending your staff to our courses is one way to develop the ability of your staff to provide that training. Whether your staff take the courses for college credit or not, they can (a) acquire the latest knowledge and skills needed to implement the PFCE framework, and (b) use our curriculum and materials for training other staff back home. 

We provide these courses for college credit for Head Start staff in conjunction with the California State University East Bay. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only West Coast provider of university-credit courses that are keyed exactly to the Relationship Based Competencies in the PFCE framework. These courses take place during the summer at the California State University downtown Oakland campus. The Summer Institute faculty are drawn from the Schools of Social Work and Social Welfare at U.C. Berkeley, CSU East Bay, San Francisco State, and other area universities and their MSW graduates, and from Head Start programs. These courses have also been conducted on-site for the City of Oakland, Riverside County Office of Education, Tulare County Office of Education, Merced County Office of Education, and others.  

Completion of four of the Basic Skills courses (12 credits) leads to issuance of the Certificate in Family Development from California State University. About 800 of our students have successfully transferred CSUEB college credits to dozens of different academic institutions.   No academic institution has refused to accept these credits from CSU.  

All Institute participants can get:

  • Four days of family development and case management training. The fee for Basic Skills 1 or 2 is $795 each.
  • Information Packet: After we receive your registration, we will send you an information packet with: (a) what clothing to bring, (c) how to get from airports to the hotels, (d) driving directions, (e) the preliminary schedule, (g) parking instructions, (h) whether or not you are one of the first 49 registrants for that week who can go on the free bus trip to San Francisco,
  • A terrific workbook with many useful materials.
  • 3 college credits to be used towards an A.A. or a B.A. ($267, for Basic Skills)
  • Up to 17 CEUs for LCSWs or MFTs. (for Management Institute only, from CSUEB)
  • After Hours: A free guided tour of San Francisco for the first 49 registrants.
  • And a reception hosted by the Center for Community Futures.
  • Certificate of Completion: If you complete 75% of the classes, you will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Institute.
  • Substitutions. Substitutions are allowed at any time. We must have a written request, e-mail or mail. No substitutions by telephone. (We will confirm the substitution in writing and send the new person an information packet.)
