Foster Carer Training

What's it all about?

Stara has been added to the panel of providers to supply training for people applying to the Department for Communities to become Foster Carers.

What to expect

A series of courses includes the following modules:

  1. Overview and Providing Foster Care
  2. Care for the Child: Understanding Trauma and Attachment
  3. Care for the Child: 'Healing' Parenting Skills
  4. Bringing a Child Into Your Home: Considerations and Impacts
  5. Self Development and SelfCare
  6. Leaving Care: Policies, Course Review and Evaluation

Although we cover a great deal of important and serious information, the style of the course is informal and relaxed. Its a time for you to learn new things but also to share your views and listen to other considering fostering too.
