What our community partners are saying

“NEOFACS has been thoroughly impressed with the high-quality content of 鶹Ӿ’s two child welfare micro credentials.

These innovative online courses complement the existing provincial training program, ensuring that graduates are even better prepared to face the challenges they will encounter in the field. The engaging curriculum is supported by experienced child welfare instructors. Students can complete the micro-credentials at their own pace from anywhere, making it a convenient option for busy learners.

We strongly encourage other child-serving organizations to consider incorporating these valuable micro-credentials into their onboarding programs. They provide new staff and students with a solid foundation in child welfare principles and best practices.

NEOFACS has seen firsthand how these courses set up aspiring child protection workers for success in their placements and beyond.”
