Workshops and courses are designed to meet and exceed Georgia's  Workforce Knowledge and Competencies (WKCs). The WKCs guide the development and delivery of quality professional learning opportunities for Georgia’s early learning and school age workforce. The WKCs answer the question, “What should early learning and school

age professionals working with young children know and do?” The WKCs provide a framework for trainers, coaches, and other professional learning specialists to create learning experiences that directly address the individual needs of each early learning and school age professional. The WKCs replace the Georgia Professional Development Competencies for Early Care and Education Professionals and the Georgia Professional Development Competencies for School-Age Care Professionals.
