At Bath and North East Somerset Council, we are committed to providing you with the training to develop the skills and experience you need to look after foster children & young people.

The training runs throughout the year and is an opportunity to learn new skills. Following approval you are encouraged to develop your skills through training, with an expectation that you complete the core training courses within the first 2 years and continue to develop your skills thereafter.

Help and advice is always available. Don’t worry if you haven’t studied for a while or are uncertain, extra support is provided.
