Core Competencies for the Recreation and Parks Field


Alberta Recreation and Parks Association
Toby Rabinovitz

The ARPA Education & Professional Development Committee
has identified a set of core competencies directly related to the
recreation and parks field, and has developed a resource tool for
practitioner use. One of the biggest challenges a supervisor faces
is to understand which competencies and behaviours make staff
effective. This presentation, from the 2009 Alberta Recreation and Parks Association Annual Conference and Energize Workshop, provides an overview of the tool kit to identify personal competencies and those of colleagues, and plan effectively for: 

  • Coaching sessions
  • Performance management strategies 
  • Succession planning 
  • Recruiting the best match for your requirements,
  • Creating a learning and development plan
    customized specifically for your staff.
