Fostering 'T' ..... A - Z Blog Challenge

As Jeff and I have been foster carers for 3 years this month it seemed the right time to have Fostering as a topic for the A-Z. We're still new enough that we're not jaded yet, but have had a pretty bumpy ride, so fairly realistic in what fostering is really about.

Further information at The Fostering Network

Types of Fostering - Covered throughout the A-Z.
Training - when you are first registered as foster carers you will be expected to complete the Children's Workforce Development Council Induction Standards within the first year. Also, throughout the time you remain a foster carer you should maintain Continuous Professional Development. This can be gained through training your agency puts on, whether classroom based or online. Reading, watching a relevant programme, discussion can also be used if you write a reflective account on how long the training took and what you learned.
