Training for Our Foster Carers

Xcel 2000 recognises the importance of ensuring that carers receive appropriate training to assist and support them in their role. Xcel 2000 is committed to providing carers with training throughout the year and has an annual training programme with a training day offered once a month, during term time.  Foster carers can also access external training events and carers are supported in completing the TSD training. We are delighted to be working in partnership with an online leading on training provider in the UK, to provide some On-Line training for carers.

The range of E-Learning courses provides the knowledge across a range of issues that is essential learning for Foster Carers.  These courses will not replace the need for foster carers to attend in-house training, but are excellent for 2nd carers who want to undertake training but find it hard to attend.   The courses are reviewed and kept up to date with current legislation and are mapped to Training Support and Development Standards.

Previous Training Courses 

Training provided by Xcel 2000 in the past has included: Working with children and their challenging behaviour, Sexual Abuse Awareness, Drugs and Alcohol, First Aid, Fire Prevention, Record Keeping and Report Writing, Family Contact, Life Story Work, Child Protection and Court Skills.

Many of these courses are repeated each year as part of a rolling programme while other training events are organised to meet the specific needs of carers. Training events planned for this year include Child Protection, Working with Therapists and Making the Most of Men in Foster Care.

Training For Prospective Foster Carers 

Xcel 2000 runs preparation training for new and prospective foster carers and is currently using The Fostering Networks 'The Skills to Foster' training package. Existing carers and children of carers are involved in the delivery of this training.
