Training Opportunities & Rewards
Develop your skills and be rewarded for doing so. If you are interested in developing existing skills (or gaining new ones), we offer our carers a comprehensive programme of training support, helping you become the best foster carer you can be.
What Training Do You Receive As A Foster Carer?
Journey 2 Foster
All new foster carers will take part in our Journey 2 Foster training, which helps us identify your current skills, weaknesses and experience.
You'll learn more about foster care and how your skills can help young people flourish.
Our e-learning course is designed to help you learn all the skills you need for your foster care career.

Whether you’re interested in developing your existing skills or simply want to learn something new, you’re in the right place.
You can benefit from a range of specialist therapeutic courses throughout your fostering career, designed and delivered by a leading expert in the field.
These include (but are not limited to):

What are your long-term goals? With a personal development plan, we can help you reach them.
Together with your social worker, you will develop a personal development plan to help you to develop your skills, as well as identify personal goals and ambitions for you as a carer.
"The rewards are like nothing else so we would encourage people to make that call and find out more."
