Training, Support and Development

It is recommended that all Foster Carers complete the TSD within 12 months of being approved (18 months for Connected Persons).

It can seem quite daunting and a LOT of work but definitely worth it.  Once passed you go to the next skills level and your skills payment is increased. This allows you to move forward to becoming an Advanced Carer.
