Training for Foster Carers

The Fostering Service has developed a comprehensive training programme in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester’s Workforce Development Team.  The Fostering Service is responsible for the development and delivery of all training courses for foster carers, and for the provision of supervision and support to foster carers.

This training programme reflects the Council’s commitment to the provision of quality training services to foster carers.  Our aim is:

“To ensure that all people involved in developing and providing the fostering service are trained, equipped, supported, involved, rewarded, valued and respected in relation to the job they do.”
