Para Professionals in the Social Service Workforce

This Interest Group explored and consolidated perspectives and key considerations concerning the role of this category of workers. For more information, see a description of this group here.

Interest Group members produced Para Professionals in the Social Service Workforce: Guiding Principles, Functions and Competencies.  This document includes guiding principles for developing programs and activities related to how para professionals can be trained, developed, deployed and supported, and a competency framework to provide program guidance, accountability and ultimately inform both training and supervision. The first edition was released in September 2015 and second edition in 2017.
