Foster Carer Training

C&R_0013

Fostering is highly rewarding. But it can be demanding too.

That’s why we’re committed to providing our carers with the quality training they need to deal with the more complex aspects of the role.

Whether you want to gain new qualifications, receive specialist placement training or simply develop your skills; our dedicated team are on hand to give you the support and guidance you need.

Your training begins as part of the assessment process to help you understand exactly what’s involved and decide whether fostering’s right for you.

Post–approval training

We know that you’ll be eager to learn new skills as soon as you join our family. So in the 12 months following approval, you’ll complete post-approval training, which consists of seven core training modules.

On-going training

We offer a wealth of on-going training opportunities to help you enhance existing skills and develop new ones throughout your fostering career.

Our courses taking place at regular intervals at an office near you. Some of the topics include:

  • Child protection
  • Safer caring
  • Managing difficult behaviour
  • Identity and self esteem
  • Valuing diversity and promoting equality
  • Recording
  • First aid
  • Health and safety
  • Responding to Sexually Harmful Behaviour
  • Education
  • Working with children who have been abused
  • Empowering children and young people
  • Preparing young people for moving on to independence
  • Therapeutic crisis intervention

Alongside training, we also encourage and support our foster carers to study for formal recognition of their knowledge and skills.
