Westfield State University to Offer Leadership in Human Services Academy

WESTFIELD — The College of Graduate and Continuing Education and the Department of Social Work at Westfield State University will offer a Leadership in Human Services Academy beginning Wednesday, Feb 6.

This hybrid certificate program will provide social workers and other human-service professionals with the core knowledge of leadership, administration, and supervision necessary to help them be successful as they transition into a leadership role within an agency.

The program is divided into four units. For each unit, participants will complete five one-hour online modules and then attend a three-hour, face-to-face seminar that explores the application of material covered in the online modules. These seminars are scheduled to take place on Wednesdays, Feb. 27, March 20, April 10, and May 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. The certificate program takes 12 weeks to complete.

The cost of this program is $800, and licensed social workers will earn 32 CEUs by completing it. Individuals who do not wish to commit to the entire certificate program may enroll in individual online trainings at $30 per module, for which licensed social workers can earn one CEU each.
