Foster Care Training
How we encourage personal development in our carers.
Foster care training styles and requirements are always developing; as culture and the environments in which children interact change, it’s so important that we as an organisation keep up with the pace of change.
You will need to be committed to attending training sessions.
It’s a vital part of what you do as a carer and our outstanding and unique training courses will be both hugely beneficial as well as fascinating and informative.
As you become more experienced as a foster carer, you’ll develop new skills that you never knew you had and will certainly gain more insight into the lives of children and young people. You may also have the opportunity to work in partnership with local authorities and a wide range of other professionals such as Therapists, Education Specialists and Social Workers.
The CFT prides itself on the level of foster carer training and support we give to all carers within our organisation and we will encourage you in your personal development to help you become the best carer you can be.

A Foster carers role is extremely hard work, but hugely rewarding. It’s a very slow process to gently piece together and repair the experiences of the child’s life and story, but to see and reflect on the huge changes they make, self belief and confidence they gain give you a fantastic feeling of great job satisfaction.
