Support briefings

Support briefings are sessions that are led by guest speakers to share information in specialist topic areas necessary for you to complete your role as foster carer. 

Due to the implementation of the new Learning Management System there will be no courses, support groups or briefings taking place in April.   The training schedule for 2022/23 is currently being planned and will be released over the coming weeks - training is anticipated to recommence in May 2022.

We are currently working on a schedule of face to face Support Briefings.  To book onto a Support Briefings please email wdsupport@gateshead.gov.uk


If you have a topic/subject you feel comfortable talking about/taking questions on and feel would be of benefit to other foster carers, please contact kirstymusgrave@gateshead.gov.uk.

The The foster caring training requirements document (PDF) [418KB] (opens new window) will remind you of the mandatory and core training requirements and the number of training courses, support groups and briefings you are expected to participate in annually.
