Fostering

At PRICE training we understand that the task of fostering is a tough one, foster carers look after extremely vulnerable children and young people who often display behaviour which is difficult to cope with. These BILD accredited courses, especially for foster carers and those who support them, deliver skills that will help manage physically-challenging behaviour in the least restrictive way, focusing heavily on de-escalation and diversion techniques.

Our training enables your staff to:

  • prevent and de-escalate crises
  • understand the role of Positive behaviour support plans within a behaviour management framework
  • understand the causes of challenging behaviour and its functions
  • provide effective coping strategies for service users and support workers
  • reduce the need to rely on high-risk interventions
  • learn a range of breakaway techniques

We offer two models of delivery for this training:

Participant model – one of our highly experienced BILD Acredited PRICE training Instructor’s deliver the course directly to those in your organisation who need the skills. If you are interested in this model you can find out more by clicking on the Participant courses from the list below.

Instructor model – you send a member of your staff to train to become a BILD approved in-house PRICE Instructor. Once qualified they can deliver bespoke training within your organisation to those who need it. You can train as many people as your organisation requires. If you’re interested in this model, you can find out more by clicking on the Instructor courses from the list below.
