Foster Carer Training

Foster Carer Training

At By the Bridge we provide a range of training to benefit and support the needs and development of children of all ages. We will work with you to identify training to meet the needs of you, your foster children and family.


We want you to develop skills, knowledge and qualifications while you’re a Foster Carer, and feel secure and confident in your work. You don’t need any previous training or formal qualifications to foster, but you will need to be prepared to learn new things.


Whether you want to gain new qualifications or be trained to enhance your fostering skills further, our training will help you build upon the qualities and life experience you already have. You'll always have opportunities to undertake more training and development with us.


Our therapeutic training can result in positive outcomes for many children and makes our Foster Carers highly demanded. 


Types of  Foster Carer Training Courses


Every year we offer over 20 optional courses on a range of issues that are essential and relevant learning - many new courses. These are courses are run by knowledgeable and friendly people.


Foster Carer Promotion

As you complete your fostering training, along with meeting other criteria, you have the opportunity to apply for promotion to higher pay grades too.

Our local offices and countryside locations are carefully chosen and decorated with bright colours, pictures and plants. So everyone experiences a sense of care, value and ‘a homely’ feel when they come to work or visit. We aim to create an environment where people feel valued and can grow, develop and achieve their goals.
