Core Competencies reflect the needs of our workforce by recognizing the professional nature of Developmental Services, recruiting the right people, building leadership capacity and ultimately enhancing the lives of the people we support.
Developmental Services Workforce Initiative
The Developmental Services Workforce Initiative was formed with the focus to address one aspect of Journey to Belonging: Choice and Inclusion, namely, Planning for a Skilled Workforce. This part of the plan is about supporting a skilled, diverse and professional workforce that will help people participate meaningfully in their communities and live good lives.
Modernizing the Core Competencies is one component to support this outcome.
