We see our foster carers as professionals and so we will give you access to a wide range of learning, development and training opportunities. This training will include helping you to understand and respond to the needs of the children that you are caring for:

  • Our preparation course during the assessment process
  • Ongoing training opportunities to develop your skills

We provide specialist training so you can develop your skills as a foster carer including:

  • Promoting positive behaviour and relationships
  • Child development
  • Attachment and promoting resilience
  • Baby and beyond
  • Contact (with family and friends)
  • The role of the foster carer
  • Men in fostering

We offer training online and face to face at different times and locations, so you can learn at a time convenient to you.We will create a Personal Development Plan with you during your assessment which will continue to be reviewed annually. This will include the training, learning, development and support groups that we feel are essential at each stage of your fostering journey and this will be tailored to your individual learning needs. We also offer the opportunity for foster carers to gain the QCF Level 3 in Children and Young People qualification.
