As with all aspiring organisations our staff, carers and adopters are our best resource. We are keen to cascade learning where possible and to raise standards within this caring environment. We also value the external knowledge from our partners in the independent and voluntary sectors and welcome this specialists input at training and support events.
Increasingly more and more foster carers have joined staff in ‘training for trainers’ and have greatly added to the quality and diversity of training available. We now have a range of in house training programmes available to foster carers and are delivered widely within Trusts each year. We are also building a recommended reading list and we will be delighted to share these resources with our HSC fostering and adoption family.
