The Child & Youth Care (Worker) advanced diploma program is offered in twenty colleges in the province of Ontario. In Child and Youth Care programs there is diversity in delivery methods, unique course offerings, structure, and course sequencing. The project team communicated, collaborated and consulted with their provincial CYC counterparts throughout the project in order to ensure consistency, accuracy and engagement. As a result, the project team was able to successfully navigate through the diverse program complexities in order to develop an innovative College to College pathway utilizing an outcomes based analysis to develop an inclusive and flexible transfer agreement. A significant outcome of this project’s methodology resulted in the development of a live, web-based document that efficiently advances the process for CYC college to college program transferability and currency of the pathway.
