Pre-Approval Training

We believe your fostering journey begins before you become an approved foster carer. That’s why we offer quality pre-approval training to help you prepare for life as a foster carer.

Our pre-approval training is designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to foster with confidence.

It takes place over three days in your nearest office and will equip you with everything you need to become a great foster carer.

What will I learn?

Our pre-approval training is a great opportunity to get to know other applicants and begin to build your own fostering network. You’ll have the chance to talk to foster carers and professionals in a relaxed, laidback environment.

You’ll learn more about fostering, gain an insight into why children and young people are in foster care, and be able to discuss how fostering will affect your family.

There’s no test at the end – our focus is on helping you to understand what being a foster carer involves so you can become a positive role model for the children and young people you’ll care for.

The course will cover six key areas:

  • The role of a foster carer
  • Team Parenting® and working together
  • Understanding children and young people
  • Safer caring
  • Becoming a resilient and successful carer
  • Supporting children when they leave your care
