Training course to prepare you for fostering

We deliver Skills to Foster in person over two consecutive Saturdays from 9am – 2pm at a central location in Telford. Alternatively, you have the option to attend three evening sessions online over Microsoft Teams from 6pm – 9pm. 

You are welcome to attend the Skills to Foster training before you apply to foster with us. Please get in touch if you would like to join the next one. We will have an intial conversation with you and arrange to visit your home before you start the course, to answer any initial questions. 

You need to attend both daytime events or all three evening sessions. If you are applying as a couple, you will both need to attend all sessions. Please contact us to discuss the options that would suit you best.
