Advanced Practitioner

Hi, I am Victoria Smith. I am the Advanced Practitioner at Pathway Care where my focus is working to match complex young people who need a bespoke wrap-around package to live in our fostering households often transitioning from residential care. We upskill and support our carers to offer young people a family fostering experience, for those children who have previously missed this opportunity.

I also support student social workers as Practice Educator and Supervisor, where I offer direct support and experience in their development of social worker practice before qualifying.

My other passion is training and supporting our carers to develop their own skill base and relate this to the outstanding care they provide.
