Specialist Training

At Alternate Care we believe in investing in our people.  To provide the best outcomes we rely on motivated, confident and skilled people and we provide ongoing training to achieve this.  Our new foster carers attend Quality Care, Foster Carer training.  This consists of a pre-service training, standards training and advanced training.  The pre-service training is completed prior to the initial Foster Carer approval.  The training we provide is tailored to providing the knowledge to our workers to provide the best outcomes for the children/young people or adult/s with an intellectual or cognitive disability in our care.  Some examples are Autism Spectrum Disorder & Sensory Defensiveness, Cultural Awareness, Policies & Procedures, Positive Behaviour, Why kids do what they do and Senior First Aid.  We also provide avenues to undertake certificate and degree qualifications.
