On-going training and support

After being approved as a foster carer, your learning will continue. We have a wide range of free courses you can attend to help you develop your skills further.

On-going training for approved foster carers is an essential part of what Foster East has to offer. All local authority foster carers are encouraged to sign up for courses including first-aid, safeguarding and providing safe care and are all available locally to you. Some training courses have to be completed regularly to refresh your knowledge in certain areas. We also offer therapeutic training opportuities and training around trauma. 

As a partnership, Foster East allows any local authority foster carer in the East of England to join a training session delivered by any participating authority. Please speak with your supervising social worker if there is a course you are interested in.
