Development of a 21st Century Corrections Learning Professional Competency


The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) is soliciting proposals from organizations, groups, or individuals to enter into a cooperative agreement in a twelve (12) month project period for the development of a Corrections Learning Professional Competency Model. This project will identify the workplace learning competencies needed by correctional learning/training professionals at different organizational levels. It will define the competency, identify the relevant knowledge needed for its development, describe behaviors that are reflective of the competency, identify the skills required to use and develop the competency and suggest training strategies appropriate to the competency. The competency model will provide the foundation and focus, in conjunction with the NIC Learning and Performance White Paper (to be completed October, 2012), and the knowledge, skills, behaviors, responsibilities, and tasks needed for the future development and delivery of corrections learning work within the NIC Academy and the field of corrections. It will also provide a model for learning professionals in the field of corrections.
