The next stage is for you to be invited to join our next Skills to Foster training course. This training will be interesting and insightful, and sometimes may be an emotional experience. Skills to Foster is part of your assessment and will help to prepare you to become foster carers. It will cover in detail the fostering task, such as working with the child's family, child development, managing challenging behaviour, promoting the education and health of children and preparing young people for leaving care. During the course, you will have the opportunity to meet other foster carers and potential foster carers as well as our social workers and some fostered young people.
