It’s important to maintain ties between siblings in care. One way to do this is through sibling placements. This course will give you an insight into the importance of sibling placements and will look at what the benefits of having sibling placements are. It will also consider what the possible barriers might be to these placements, such as the identification of siblings being challenging, especially when children have lived in more than one family. The course will give you strategies you can implement that will benefit the siblings and the foster carer.

The main learning objectives of the course are as follows:

  1. To understand the importance of siblings
  2. To understand sibling relationships in abusive or neglectful families
  3. To be aware of the benefits of placing siblings together
  4. To be aware of the barriers to placing siblings together
  5. To know the practices for keeping siblings together in placement
  6. To know what to do when siblings cannot live in the same home
  7. To know how to maintain ties between separated siblings
  8. To recognise sibling issues within the foster care

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