Question 1: Since the design of the initial Instructor-Led program(ILT), which competencies have the highest Knowledge, Skills and Abilities (KSA) learning gaps?
Answer: Not all competencies from the supervisor level profile from our competency model are addressed in the existing package, as some will be specific to a correctional agency's jurisdiction, such as a state or local corrections agency(criminal justice system). We believe that the existing package is solid. The focus of this Cooperative Agreement is the conversion of the existing package from instructor led training (ILT) to virtual instructor led training (VILT), and the development of a virtual Train the Trainer framework.
Question 2: Additionally, what is the target audience for the VILT?
Answer: First line supervisors in all state and local corrections settings across the United States.
Question 3: Are there additional positions and/or roles that have been added and/or omitted since the inception of the training?
Question 4: I would like to review the Facilitator and Participant Guide of the current ILT, please email a copy of both the Facilitator and Participant guides.
Answer: Contact: email@example.com
Question 5: Resource makes reference to sources that "all project team members should familiarize themselves," where can I gain access to these resources, i.e.,
Evidence-based Training Methods: A Guide for Training Professionals, ATSD Handbook for Workplace Learning Professionals, etc.
Answer: These resources are books that are available for purchase via Amazon and other providers.
The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is seeking applications for funding under Fiscal Year 2021 Leadership Initiative. Work completed under this cooperative agreement will result in the conversion of curriculum from Instructor Led Training (ILT) to Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT), and the development of a virtual train the trainer curriculum for NIC’s Academy Division. This course will be used to build competency and capacity in the field of corrections in leadership development.
