This is a two day course which is usually delivered over consecutive Saturdays. You’ll be led by a very experienced social worker and have the opportunity to hear from guest speakers who can include current foster carers and adults who had been fostered themselves. By the end of the course you’ll have a much deeper understanding of what is expected of you as a foster carer.
When you become an approved foster carer for Merthyr Tydfil or Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT) County Borough Council, you will have regular access to a range of training courses to support your continual development as a foster carer. Improving your skills and knowledge will help ensure that foster placements work well for you and the child or young adult in your care. Your supervising social worker will be on hand to support you in your development and identify the right training to help you most.
