This final part of the guide is for those who want to develop programs for settlement counsellors or other human service workers and are interested in what was learned from the experience of developing the CSISW course. Details are given on how the course was coordinated, how participants were selected, how their training needs were assessed, what types of trainers were used, and what evaluation process was used.

The course was envisioned as an in-service training course for service providers currently in the settlement field, whose job functions included counselling-related activities. It was targeted at practitioners who provided direct service exclusively to immigrants and refugees, as opposed to those whose workloads happened to include immigrants.

Information includes:

  • Course organization
  • Participant selection
  • Developing the curriculum
  • Requirements for course completion
  • The evaluation process
  • Tips on organizing and developing training for settlement counsellors

Part III ends with a summary of tips on developing and implementing this type of training program.
