Be an Agent of Change:
Boost Your Training’s Impact into the Performance Environment 

T he OCWTP has been a lead innovator in child welfare training for over 30 years. But today’s trainers face greater challenges than ever before getting training to stick long enough to be applied in the real world. And the stakes remain as critical as ever if we don’t. The good news is we have better research and tools today than ever before to help us bridge that divide. But first we must be realistic about the challenge and be committed to doing our part to address it.
