Be prepared, pack the toolkit and the spare!
Staff will need to be oriented and prepared to implement best practices prior to initial implementation. It is important to consider ongoing staff supports at this time to build competency and confidence (e.g. staff management, staff meetings or PLCs, professional development, coaching).
Staff Resource Considerations:
- Develop training coaching plans
- Determine need for external or internal trainers and coaches
- Determine need for outside or internal staff coaches
- Secure financial resources to engage external coaches
- Identify ongoing training topics as implementation progresses
- Establish a regular staff meeting schedule
