Many of the children or young people who need to live with foster carers have been through traumatic experiences. As a consequence of this, they may feel lonely, afraid, or confused - which may result in challenging behaviour. When young people are placed in foster care, the skills that the foster carers possess are important in terms of building and working with these young people.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  1. To be able to provide a good standard of care to other people’s children in order to promote their health, education, and leisure interests
  2. To be able to listen and communicate with children/young people in a way that is appropriate for their age and understanding
  3. To be willing to learn new skills
  4. To be able to help the child/young person keep in contact with their family, friends, and local community activities as appropriate
  5. To be able to put boundaries in place in order to manage behaviour in an effective and positive way to enable children/young people to grow up to be responsible and well-balanced adults
  6. To have the energy and motivation to remain committed to a child/young person through more challenging times
  7. To be able to work with, and understand, the role of all the professionals involved in the child/young person’s life

This course meets the Training, Support, and Development Standards as outlined in The Fostering Services (England) Regulations 2011.
