Training Liaisons

The UNH Center for Professional Excellence in Child Welfare (CPE) continually assesses the training needs of DCYF staff in a variety of ways including via Training Liaisons (either an Educational Program Coordinator or a Training Specialist) assigned to each DCYF district office. Training Liaisons meet directly with staff within each district office on a regular basis and maintain ongoing contact by phone and email. Training Liaisons are responsible for guiding CPE's training programs and working with staff to assess and provide support for their individual trainings needs. In addition, Training Liaisons assist in identifying and coordinating trainings scheduled in the district offices, which are intended to meet the specific needs of each individual office:
