Recognizing challenging fiscal times, and the need for continued capacity building and practitioner development in our communities, SAMHSA will cover the costs of training, travel, and lodging for NNEDLearn 2013 participants.
Expected NNED Partner Commitment
Our experience show that the commitment from organizational leadership maximized the benefits to participants, agencies, and to SAMHSA. Applicants will be asked to verify support from agency leadership or supervisors to commit to full and active participation in the NNEDLearn 2013 training model.
NNEDLearn 2013 Training Model
Recognizing that it takes more than on-site training to implement new practices or programs, SAMHSA requests that NNED Partner Organizations and its leadership commit to the full NNEDLearn 2013 Model which includes: pre-work, a 2½ day on-site training, and participation in a post-training 5 month followup.
- Prework prepares the NNED Partner team and involves participation in a webinar (1½ hours) and completion of readiness assignments prior to the onsite training.
- The on-site training will occur on April 29- May 1 in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico and involves 15.5 hours of direct training and an opportunity to share community best practices with other participants.
- Post training work will continue over the course of five months. Each track becomes a "community of practice" that provides ongoing coaching and follow-up to ensure the uptake of the practice or program. This is done through regular webinars, coaching calls, and online discussion forums with the trainers.
