Supervisory Skill Labs are open for registration
The Office of Learning and Professional Development is pleased to announce that registration is open for Supervisory Skill Lab Presentations on Reflective Supervision, Coaching, Self-Care and Time Management! These trainings are geared toward supervisory staff within DCFS and POS agencies who have completed the Model of Supervisory Practice Training series. We encourage supervisors to take advantage of this opportunity to enhance the skills learned in the Model of Supervisory Practice Training and earn two professional development hours.
