Professional development and training
Our service is dedicated to promoting the professional and personal development of foster carers to enable them to care effectively for children and adolescents with complex trauma. Bespoke practice-based training, clinical guidance and therapeutic support is provided to our carers to enable them to understand and care for children and young people with complex emotional needs.
We provide professional and academic training to our foster carers through our Institute, where carers can begin their training pathway at an introductory level of Integrated Therapeutic fostering. The carers participate in a course of specialist Integrated Systemic Therapy (IST) training and will be supported 24/7 by Childhood First.
