common question

what training will I receive?

what training will I receive?

Just by thinking about it, you’ve got the basics to become a great foster carer. Compassion. Dedication. Curiosity.

We take the time and offer the expertise to help you build on those basics, to give you all the tools you will need. 

what you’ll learn

You’ll learn how we work collectively, the rules that help guide what we do, and how to be the best you can be. With training courses and qualifications, you’ll never feel like you’re standing still.

when you’ll learn

We’re flexible, and that includes our learning and development framework. You’ll have access to varied learning opportunities at times that suit you. It’s not about ticking a box, it’s about growing every day. Some skills are general, some are more specifically suited to a particular child. We’ll give you whatever training and support you need, whenever you need it.
