Your fostering social worker will work with you to put together a personal development plan for the year ahead that is unique to you.

Your fostering social worker will provide you with details of how to access specific types of training and answer any questions you might have about topics you want to learn more about.

Most of our training is designed to avoid school holidays and is generally based around school times.


There will be opportunities for you to gain qualifications, including Diploma Level 3 and BTEC Level 4.

Training feedback

Our Training Steering Group (which includes representatives from all the fostering teams across Kent and foster carers) meets regularly to evaluate and plan training across Kent. Your views on our training are most welcome.
