  • Equality and diversity
  • Attachment and child development
  • Good recording practice
  • Teamwork, communication and contact
  • Promoting positive behaviour

  • First aid

It doesn’t stop there though, we also offer ongoing opportunities to achieve additional qualifications – visit training and career progression to find out more.

Therapeutic training

We pride ourselves on our therapeutic approach to fostering, which is why we also offer specialist training to help you become a therapeutic foster carer.

Therapeutic fostering entails more than just providing physical care. It involves being able to think about the child you look after differently, understanding their behaviour and knowing how to respond in a way that can help them recover from past experiences.

For a chat about our therapeutic training opportunities, please contact us.

Foster carer review

We know how important it is to listen to our foster carers which is why we have annual reviews which are a great opportunity for you to discuss the progress of your placement(s), share any concerns or ask to be considered for other types of placements.

You can use this as an opportunity to discuss your fostering experience, talk about your achievements and request any additional training or support.

At FCA Scotland we’re a family. And families stick together. Whatever you need, whatever your questions; our support team is only a phone call away.

To find out more and take the first step in your fostering journey, fill in our online enquiry form or give us a call on 0141 646 4805.
