It's not the same as parenting your own children, because they've never been through that trauma. You need commitment to the child and commitment to attend training. Helen, Foster Carer
Preparation training "Skills to foster"
Skills to Foster training involves three full days where we discuss the foster carer’s role, the children, working together, safety, behaviour and letting go. The training will help you to make an informed decision about whether fostering is right for you.
You will be expected to attend the core set of foster care training within the first 6-12 months from approval.
Further Training & Qualifications
Further training is available and encouraged through our diploma qualifications and Payment for Skills scheme.
