Training courses

Our Workforce Development page gives a list of all training courses that are on offer to foster carers. You can search for a course by selecting 'foster care' from the first drop down menu. Information on each course can be found by clicking 'view' which is located next to the name of the course.

How to book

If you would like to attend any of the training courses listed, please contact your Link Worker, who will book a place for you. You may be able to attend a Blaenau Gwent specific course if there is availability - please discuss this with your Link Worker.

Please no not book any courses yourselves - your Link Worker must book them on your behalf.

Cancellations and non attendance of training courses

We appreciate that your role as foster carers can sometimes mean that unexpected events can prevent you from attending a training course. Last year last minute cancellations and failures to attend courses cost the council many thousands of pounds.

Places on training courses are limited and there is often a reserve list. If you are unable to attend a course please ensure you contact the training team, giving as much notice as possible so the place can be offered to someone else
