Child Welfare Training and Advancement Program


The Child Welfare Training and Advancement Program (CWTAP) is a federally funded, Title IV-E partnership between Washington's Children's Administration and participating public universities. Eastern is proud to be part of this successful, long-standing partnership.   

CWTAP seeks to recruit and retain highly trained, well-educated, and committed child welfare professionals for this critical work. CWTAP is designed for current child welfare professionals pursuing their MSW, and for other MSW students interested in child welfare as a career path. In exchange for receiving financial assistance, CWTAP students agree to work for Washington's Children's Administration following graduation. With approval from Children's Administration, graduates may seek employment with a Federally Recognized Tribe in Washington State.

CWTAP students complete their practicum in Children's Administration offices.  The field experience focuses learning on professional child welfare practice and includes learning on child abuse and neglect, risk assessment, family reunification, separation and loss, permanency planning, court testimony and case management.
