The Fostering Network have supported foster carers and services with training for many years, from developing the leading pre-approval training The Skills to Foster™, Managing Allegations and Fostering Panel training through to providing packages of courses covering a variety of topics to meet your foster carers's and service’s needs. Much of our training is designed to benefit both foster carers and social workers.
Fostering in a digital world: the challenges
Technology is part of children and young people’s lives and it is here to stay.
Children are going online at an earlier age and spending increasing amounts of time indulged in the vast digital treasure cove. Challenges arise as children learn digital skills before they learn important life skills.
For all its benefits, the internet can also present risks, particularly to looked after children and young people, some of whom may be particularly vulnerable.
