Professional Guidance: WI T-TAP Competencies

Description: The Wisconsin Training and Technical Assistance Professional (T-TAP) Competencies For Early Childhood and Related Professionals Working with Adults define the relevant knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed by T-TA Professionals. The T-TAP Competencies are organized into seven areas:

I: Building Relationships
II: Communication
III: Professionalism and Ethics
IV: Adult Learning Principles
V: Planning Learning Opportunities for Adults
VI: Delivering Learning Opportunities for Adults
VII: Continuous Quality Improvement

The T-TAP Competencies are not intended to be an exhaustive list; rather, they provide general guidance for best practices when working with the professionals who directly serve young children and their families.

Uses: The WI T-TAP Competencies have been designed as a framework that complements other professional development systems. Here are some examples of how the WI T-TAP Competencies are being used:
