Skills to Foster
The first mandatory training that you will be expected to attend is ‘Skills to Foster’. This will be attended during your assessment and each applicant is required to attend.
This course is run over two days and is intended to provide you with a basic awareness and understanding of the fostering role, as well as insight into issues relating to the care of children who are looked after. This will also give you the opportunity to meet other people in assessment, listen to the stories and experiences of Foster Carer/s.
The Skills to Foster course is part of the assessment process so attendance is a pre-approval requirement.
