Pre-approval training forms part of your assessment process and is designed to prepare you for the challenges ahead of you as a foster carer.

It’s held at our offices in Wolverhampton city centre and is run by our dedicated social workers and experienced foster carers.

We’ll help you understand why children and young people are in foster care, explain your role as a foster carer and discuss how fostering may affect your family.

You’ll come away with a comprehensive understanding of what foster carers do, how to care safely, and how you can support children when they leave your care.

There’s no test at the end of your training, we would just like to prepare you for panel and approval.
