Enhancing Mentoring, the Supervisor’s Educational Function
The three day, live-out training aims to enhance the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of middle level supervisors in providing the needed support to improve the functioning of the supervisees. The focus is on making them proactive in intervening when there are performance gaps among the supervisees and systematically and purposively providing opportunities for their growth in their work.

Mentoring is an important task of the supervisor. However, his/her administrative responsibilities usually take precedence over upgrading the supervisee’s performance. Coaching is guiding and instructing an employee on how to do a job so that it satisfies performance goals. On the other hand, mentoring is providing guidance, advice, and encouragement through an ongoing one-on-one work relationship (Samuel Certo, Supervision, 2006)

Gender Responsive Case Management
Case management is a vital element of competent social work practice. It is the process of providing services whereby a professional social worker collaboratively assesses the needs of the client and the client’s family, when appropriate, and arranges, coordinates, monitors, evaluates, and advocates for a package of multiple services to meet the specific client’s complex needs.

The Social Work Case Gender Sensitive Case Management Training course is designed to improve the social workers’ capacity as case managers in delivering unique and quality service to client groups. It will focus on improving the skills, knowledge and attitude of case managers in helping clients using rights-based, gender sensitive and responsive approaches, and strengths perspective. It will also be a venue for practitioners to share, reflect and learn from each other’s experiences as case managers and to locate social work case management in an interdisciplinary practice of helping.

Training on Inclusive Planning for Local Development Planners
Focused on Older Persons (OPs) and Persons with Disabilities (PWDs)
The three day, live-out training seeks to build the awareness, knowledge, and skills of local government executives, planning officers, local social welfare officers, educators, health workers, PWD and OP representatives in including the needs, entitlements, and capacities of the vulnerable sectors, particularly the OPs and the PWDs, in development planning.

The inclusive approach to development planning is an alternative paradigm in assisting the vulnerable sectors particularly the older persons (OPs) and persons with disability (PWDs) by integrating their specific issues and recognizing their rights and potentials in mainstream policies, programs and services. This perspective is drawn from the State’s mandate of its responsibility to create a safe environment where its citizens can live full, satisfying lives. Everyone has the right to assert his/her entitlements which the State must provide.
