Shine, for Foster Carer Training!

We’re introducing a new way for our foster carers to manage their foster carer training!

What is SHINE?

Shine is an award-winning platform used by other organisations including Sainsbury’s, Boots and other big top brand names, that enables us to offer a truly blended learning experience to you. It provides you, and all carers in the National Fostering Group, an experience which opens up a wealth of learning opportunities accessible in one place, 24/7.

What are the benefits to our foster carers using SHINE?

  • Shine provides our carers with a personalised training journey where they can proactively manage their development and keep on top of training compliance.
  • Supervising Social Workers will help foster carers manage their training record, and suggest courses for their personal development, to meet children’s unique needs, and remain compliant.
  • Foster Carers can search and filter 100s of courses by topic, category or time taken.
  • Shine is fully mobile, enabling our foster carers to access training anytime, anywhere on a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
  • Every course completed will automatically be added to our foster carers personal record.
  • Course can be added and qualifications completed outside of time with the National Fostering Group in a few easy steps.
