We will invite you to attend the three day Skills to Foster training course. This course will give you the opportunity to learn more about the fostering process, meet an experienced foster carer and meet local people who are also part of the Fostering assessment process.
The standard pre-approval training course is divided into seven sessions covering core skills and knowledge:
•What do foster carers do?
•Identity and life chances
•Working with others
•Understanding children in foster care
•My family fosters (workshop for sons and daughters of foster carers to explain what foster care is and what it will mean for them).
