The toolkit is organized into the following sections:

  1. Organizing training around practice areas so that all the concepts in the content are grounded in practice skills;
  2. Making strategic use of online modules to maximize classroom time for skill building and practice; and
  3. Providing new social workers with opportunities to enhance classroom learning through application of concepts in the field.
