Stage 1 Training
July 26 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Preparation course – Stage 1
**N.B. This course needs to be booked by your social worker and is intended for those already in the assessment process**
Throughout Stage One and Two of the process, you will be invited to attend a four-day preparation course; applicants are required to attend every session and to participate fully throughout. The preparation course is an interactive course, with personal experiences of adopters and children in care. We cover subjects such as child development, how our own experiences and relationships influence our parenting, contact with birth families, telling your child about adoption and understanding and managing behaviour.
We will encourage regular opportunities to discuss any issues that may arise. We hope this helps prepare you for the journey ahead.
