Lineworker Core

CWDS’s Lineworker Core Training is a multi-modality training delivered over several weeks encompassing, among other topics, CalSWEC standardized training. Classes range from half to multi-day trainings, as well as elearnings and field activities.

CWDS offers this Lineworker Core course in various counties we serve, delivered in a customized way to meet the needs of a particular county (if only one county is being trained).

The classes in this course are based on competencies developed by the California Social Work Education Center (CalSWEC) and are intended for new child welfare services staff or staff transitioning into new job responsibilities. Trainings are facilitated by a number of different experts in the field of child welfare services who use a variety of teaching methods appropriate to an adult, professional audience.

Lineworker Core Training underwent a full-scale statewide revision called Common Core 3.0 beginning in January of 2016 with full implementation in early 2017. To learn more about Common Core 3.0, please visit our Common Core 3.0 webpage.

Some of the Lineworker Core classes are listed below.
