Assessing and approving people to foster is a skilled role, it is essential that children are safe and cared for with the right family. Nobody has a right to foster and it is a privileged opportunity to care for someone else’s children. Learnings from serious case reviews often talk of poor assessments, a lack of analysis and evidence, little evidence of Quality Assurance.

In this course, together we will explore:

  • The Assessment schedule and Important elements of becoming a foster carer
  • Expectations of the role and understanding the fostering agency
  • The references, checks and important aspects of stage 1:  how we seek the information and implement it meaningfully into the assessment
  • The role of the Assessor: the writing skills required, exploring learning styles and how we consider the foundations for reflective practice
  • Building the evidence: how we move away from self-reported, descriptive assessments 
  • Risk Assessing and analysis: how we ensure the reader has confidence in the recommendations and reasons presented.

The cost for the session is £115 per delegate.
