Many foster carers choose to come to Hampshire because of the wide range of good quality training we offer. We offer pre-approval training to help prepare you for when you get your first placement and you will have the opportunity to meet foster carers and young people who have been in foster care. Once you are approved, you will be able to access a wider range of training from our designated training department to enhance your skills and knowledge.
We view training as an important part of the support we provide and are committed to your on-going professional development. In Hampshire we encourage our foster carers to attend training courses alongside social workers and other professionals.
