Enhance your recruitment and empower your Foster Carers with Journey2Foster

Our training has been built on many years of experience and we want to share what we know and have learned about the qualities that are needed to become a successful foster carer!

The Journey2Foster (J2F) virtual pre-approval training course has been written by foster carers and experienced social workers, for prospective foster carers and will be delivered by FosterTalk via a secure virtual platform.

We understand that becoming a foster carer isn’t a decision that is made within a split second. We also know that fostering can be challenging and we want the carer to acknowledge the key elements of the fostering role, which are shared in an informative and interactive way. We are here to guide and support anyone who is thinking of becoming a foster carer. The objective of the training course is to understand and embrace what being a foster carer means and to also understand the needs of the children and young people who come into care.

FosterTalk will support prospective carers as they take their first steps on their journey to find out if fostering could be a career for them. We will help your carers to face the realities and rewards along the way. This will benefit your Fostering Service, by aiding your recruitment decisions and by playing a key part in the approval process.

This course can commissioned by your fostering service, for a group of applicants, times and dates to suit or for individuals, who can be booked onto a confirmed monthly course. The course will consist of 6 x 2 hour virtual modules delivered over 3 daysfollowed by 3 online modules to be completed at the applicants own pace. J2F will be delivered by FosterTalk’s trainers, who have had many years’ experience in fostering & social care. Your potential carers will be able to enjoy and complete the course in the comfort of their own surroundings.
