How would it feel to have a job where you could really make a difference. Where you could help a vulnerable child reach a path to a brighter future. All from the comfort of your own home.
Interested? We're looking for new foster carers across the south east and are holding our next Skills to Foster course in April. The three-day course is FREE and will be held in Rochester, Kent from April 3-5.
What can I expect to learn from the Skills to Foster course?
The Skills to Foster course - the Fostering Network Programme - is divided into the following six sessions; completed over 3 days. It focuses on the practical, day-to-day skills that all foster carers need. It links into the Training, Support and Development Standards in England and other professional development qualifications, as well as The Fostering Network’s competency-based assessment process.
The topics are broken down into the following sessions:
Session 1 – What do foster carers do?
Session 2 – Identity and Life Chances
Session 3 – Working with others
Session 4 – Understanding and caring for children
Session 5 – Safer caring
Session 6 - Transitions
