This 1 day training is to train delegates so that they can train facilitators of the Foster Carer course.

Delegates must have previously attended: 2 Day Foundation training AND Parenting Group or Foster Carer Course Facilitators’ training AND have facilitated at least one Solihull Approach parenting group or Foster Carer Course.
This training day is for practitioners who wish to cascade, as part of their work, the Foster Carer Course Facilitators’ training to other local practitioners, so that those practitioners can facilitate the 12-week foster carer course ‘Understanding your foster child’.

Each facilitator will need a Trainers’ Manual to support delivery of the cascade training. The Trainers’ Manual includes information about delivering each session and practical guidance for trainers, as well as handouts, etc.

When delivering training the trainers are responsible for:

  • Ensuring that those delegates they train have previously attended the 2 Day Foundation training and can provide the dates, location and trainers’ names of that training
  • Providing the Solihull Approach office with the dates and location of the Foster Carer Course Facilitators’ training and the names of those attending
  • Ensuring that those they train to be facilitators have their own copy of the Foster Carer Course Facilitators’ Manual
  • Making facilitators aware of the need to provide data returns on their courses/groups on this website
