P.R.I.D.E. Core (In-service)

There are 12 Core (In-service) training modules (approximately 100 hours). The first two modules are mandatory training for all foster families, as well as a three-hour Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) session.

During the annual review process foster parents and their resources worker will work together to complete a Family Development Plan which is designed to assess a family’s strengths and identify training needs from among the remaining Core modules in relation to the five competency categories.

These training sessions provide ongoing support and professional development for all approved foster families. (Core modules are not required training for adoptive families, however they may be provided upon request.)

The five competency categories must be understood by all members of the professional team (i.e. “Supporting relationships between children and their families” – foster parents and child welfare workers must work together to support family contact and visits which are appropriate to each individual child and family situation).
