Workshops & Trainings

*We hope to resume in-person trainings soon, but until it is safe to do so, we will keep all events in our virtual classroom. Once we reopen, we will offer both a virtual and an in-person attendance option. Read the latest updates here.

            Navigating Vaccine Mandates and Anti-Discrimination Laws

            In this interactive, half-day, training, we will explore legal and compliance considerations associated with the COVID-19 vaccine and how Head Start programs can mitigate the relevant risks associated with human resources, compensation, and federal grant considerations.


            Fiscal Management

            Join us for a two-day training addressing the hottest fiscal issues affecting Head Start programs since the release of the performance standards. Attendees will leave this hands-on training with practical tips and techniques as well as slides, supplementary sources, sample checklists and documents.


            Acing Your Monitoring Review

            Join us to learn key strategies for acing your monitoring review and best practices that will allow your program to be “review-ready” every day.


            Mastering ERSEA

            This workshop will provide an in-depth examination of the ERSEA requirements, answer frequently asked questions, and discuss approaches to common ERSEA challenges faced by Head Start programs.


            Human Resources Requirements

            How do you keep track of HR requirements for HSPPS on top of federal and state HR laws? This training covers the Head Start requirements like staff qualifications and competencies as well as common employment law risk areas such as background checks and personnel policies.


            The A to Z's of Head Start

            Join us for a crash course on managing a Head Start program. Whether you’re brand new to Head Start leadership or need a refresher on recent changes and revised federal rules, this overview will leave you feeling confident about your program’s ability to meet and maintain compliance with its programmatic obligations.


            RISK MANAGEMENT

            Our newest Head Start workshop will guide you through questions to assess whether your program's written policies can adequately handle key risks and vulnerabilities to your operations caused by the pandemic. The following week, after you've been able to use the risk assessment tool to conduct an internal review on your program, participants will gather for a brief follow-up to discuss questions and concerns.
