Training for fostering services

FosterTalk currently offers two training courses for fostering service staff with further training courses on the horizon for 2019.

Staff training – allegations and concerns

FosterTalk provides staff training on understanding the supervising social worker’s role in managing allegations and standards of care concerns. This course will enable fostering service staff to identify key components to be able to produce a ‘good practice guide for managing allegations.’

Staff training supervision skills for supervising social workers
This one day course delivered by FosterTalk enables fostering service staff to explore any prejudices and ‘unconscious bias’ that may exist when supervising foster carers and allow them to reflect on their own practice and how this can be improved. This training will give social workers the skills to achieve effective supervision for both hard to engage foster carers as well as those where the relationship balance of being too friendly versus professional or overly critical is sometimes difficult to obtain.
