New Qualification for Foster Carers – Partnership with Newbattle Abbey College

Our Director and Promise Team visited Newbattle Abbey College to thank them for their partnership in approving our brand new foster carer qualification.

The course ‘Supporting Children and Young People Who Have Experienced Trauma’ has been Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework (SCQF) rated at level 6 by the team at Newbattle.

It is the first of its kind and provides foster carers opportunities to learn about therapeutic approaches, rooted in relational practice, encompassing attachment theory, trauma informed approaches, with a strong rights focus. This brand new qualification makes becoming a foster care a positive career choice with options for progressing to further learning.

Foster Care Connect foster carers are already beginning to enrol on their programme.

This qualification is also available to all foster carers across Scotland.  Foster Care Connect have a dedicated learning and development team who have the ability to deliver the course both in person and online over a period of twelve months.

Funding from The Promise Partnership has been instrumental in supporting these developments.  We are grateful to everyone at Newbattle Abbey College for supporting us to make this happen, working in partnership to create a supportive workforce.

If you’d like to know more please drop us a message, ku.oc.tcennoccfnull@seiriuqne.
