Payment for Skills


The current Payment for Skills Framework has 3 levels: Foundation, Skilled and Advanced Level to recognise and acknowledge the experience and competencies demonstrated by Foster Carers. Enhanced payments are made for Skilled and Advanced Levels and Carers will receive 2 additional days holiday entitlement each year over the standard 14 days that all KCC foster carers receive.
