The child welfare professional development system is a partnership involving the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families (DCF), county child welfare programs, tribal child welfare programs, the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare (BMCW) and Special Needs Adoption Program (SNAP) and the University of Wisconsin system. The child welfare training system, through the regional training partnerships, provides training for over 2,000 child welfare workers throughout the State of Wisconsin. This includes pre-service and foundation training for new workers and ongoing training for advanced practice skills and specialized topics.

Central administrative support to the child welfare training system is provided by the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Social Work under contract to DCF.
