Findings and Recommendations for Cross-Sector Work in the Prenatal to Age 5 Workforce

Download Files Apr 6, 2018

The evaluation findings of the Prenatal to Age 5 Workforce Development (P-5 WFD) Project identified a need for foundational Core Competencies to promote and support the work of prenatal to age 5 (p-5) professionals as they move toward a cross-sector approach.

The project aimed to develop shared knowledge and a common language among p-5 professionals as well as to strengthen their capacity to engage in cross-sector efforts through training in the Cross-Sector Core Competencies for the Prenatal to Age 5 Field™. The evaluation findings suggest training in the Core Competencies can help professionals realize the need for core competencies and the need for cross-sector collaboration and communication among p-5 professionals. Evaluation findings also demonstrate that the training leads to attempts to promote cross-agency collaboration, cooperation, and communication and action planning efforts to put training content into practice.
