Resource: Training and assessing prospective carers during COVID-19

Due to the impact of COVID-19, out-of-home care agencies are relying on the use of online technology to train and assess potential carers and relative/kinship carers.

To support agencies in this critical work, ACWA has developed a new resource  that provides tips and guidance for trainers and assessors who are delivering Shared Lives training and undertaking Step by Step assessments online.

You can download your copy of our Training and assessing prospective carers during COVID-19 resource here.

The information contained in this resource is based on work developed by Fostering Connections, the Centre for Excellence in Child & Family Welfare, the Department of Health and Human Services, and various Victorian foster care agencies.

If you have any feedback about this resource, or questions about undertaking Shared Lives training and Step by Step assessments online, please contact Jo Roach:
