Training & Career Development

Next Stage for Fostering believes everyone working in social care should be able to take part in learning and development so they can carry out their role effectively and deliver high quality care.

Our Training and Development team is built up of exceptionally skilled individuals comprising of nurses and teachers, assessors and verifiers with specialisms in all levels of care and support, childcare, counselling, psychology and education. They hold not only high levels of educational knowledge but also practical application.

Next Stage for Fostering have developed social care qualifications in partnership with employers and awarding organisations and we run over 100 training courses per year and support employees obtaining NVQ’s to Diplomas. The qualifications we deliver provide a flexible ‘mix and match’ approach to meet our needs and there is a wide range of units that make up our qualifications that reflect what our staff should ‘know’ and ‘do’. Training is always focused on the role to always ensure any level of learning has a positive impact on the care and support we as a company provide.
