Training & Development

As a Kent Fostering Service foster carer you’ll be supported with all the skills and training you need to really make a difference to children’s lives.

We have a Stages of Development Pathway for all our foster cares with many different training opportunities. Many of our carers choose to access our specialist training programme as well as our day courses. We also offer eLearning courses to suit everyone’s needs, alongside all this we also offer Diploma Level 3 and 4 courses where carers can gain professional qualifications.

Through the training programme Kent Fostering Service foster carers will be able to access training on a whole range of subjects which aim to equip carers to provide first class care and support to the children they look after.

Alongside our day courses we also offer training programmes such as Fostering Changes, Non Violence Resistance Training and a Reflective Fostering Programme, all of which help carers in the day to day support of children living in their home.

We also hold Conferences each year and invite key speakers to deliver talks on their chosen field. This is a great joint training opportunity for carers and social work staff.
