Diploma of Community Services

Are you a Foster or Kinship Carer looking to enhance your skills and be acknowledged for the life experiences you have developed from your caring role?

In collaboration with Bradford Institute of Advanced Education, we are excited to offer Foster & Kinship Carers the opportunity to undertake the Diploma of Community Services.

The next intake for the course will be in June 2022.

This course is a unique opportunity for Carers to learn from a Trainer who has lived experience of being a Carer and working in child protection, who is supportive, encouraging and tailors the course to meet the needs of the group.

To be eligible to apply for the course, participants are required:

  • to be at least 18 years and over
  • to be a Member of CF&KC-SA (not a Member? Join online for free) and:
  • have at least 6 months experience as a Foster or Kinship Carer
  • participants would be required to attend two sessions per fortnight by Zoom (dates/times to be advised)
