Code: BH/22/1107 Training, Support & Development Standards 1-3 Workshop (Foster Carers)

The Children’s Workforce Development Council developed a set of 7 Standards to ensure that foster carers are properly inducted into fostering by their Fostering agencies.  These Standards have arisen from the ‘Every Child Matters Agenda’ and from consultation with foster carers. The Department for Education (DfE) have now taken over responsibility for the Standards.

We are running workshops to support you in completing the Training, Support & Development Standards (TSD) Workbook.

This workshop will cover the following Training, Support & Development Standards:

Standard 1 - Understand the Principles and Values Essential for Fostering Children and Young People
Standard 2 - Understanding your Role as a Foster Carer
Standard 3 - Understand Health and Safety, and Healthy Care

Implementation of these Standards will be monitored by OFSTED during their inspections of Fostering Services. 

All foster carers are required to successfully complete the workbook within 12 months.

All carers can demonstrate their knowledge of the Standards in a variety of ways, including attendance at training, attendance at the New Carers Support Group, reading the Foster Carer Handbook etc. When foster carers have successfully completed the Standards they will receive a Certificate of Completion.
