Most fostering agencies suggest that skills to foster is not required for transferring foster carers as they have usually done it before. We do not believe that you should complete the full course as a formality, but we will explain areas of training that we cover as part of the course and ask if you would like to undertake any part of it. You will be invited to a development day which we find, new foster carers coming to us find very informative and enables them to develop their general knowledge and understand what is available to them, we consider this as an agency induction day.

You will be required to be compliant in all mandatory training as set out in fostering legislation. This should be discussed as part of the transferring assessment process to be presented at Panel.
