The Title IV-E Stipend Program evaluates the extent to which the goal is being met to increase the numbers of professionally educated social workers committed to careers in public child welfare serving disadvantaged children and families. Several reports and resources are available in this section, including:

Curriculum Evaluation

The questions that guide CalSWEC's curriculum evaluation efforts are whether curriculum is being delivered to child welfare social work students as intended and whether students are learning the curriculum.

Career Path Study

The Career Path Study, now completed, looked at the careers of Title IV-E graduates at four points in time post-graduation and addresses questions about who stays and leaves their public child welfare positions, what factors influence their retention, and what are their career paths.

Workforce Study

CalSWEC's survey of the state's public child welfare workforce every three to five years determines the extent to which the state is meeting its requirements for master's-level social workers among child welfare social work staff.
