Foster Training for 2011
We are committed to the development of our carers, recognising the professional role which they have within the childcare service. We also recognise that our foster carers have varied areas of interest and expertise, thus it is our intention to enable our carers to develop further their skills through a variety of learning experiences.
It is recognised that each person has a preferred style to learning, thus Regional Foster Families provides a variety of approaches when considering how to present training. These include: workshops, conferences, 1-1 sessions, online courses and guest speakers / informal discussions at support groups. All our carers have a Professional Development Portfolio and training needs are discussed and agreed through formal supervision.
