All potential foster carers are invited to attend a fostering skills preparation course, in addition to completing a bespoke training programme designed to equip applicants with the skills, knowledge, and experience to excel as a foster carer.
You will also be required to attend safeguarding, child protection, and safer caring courses, as well as undergo home visits, supervision meetings, and telephone meetings.
