Being a Trainer

Young Trainers - You become the trainer for professional people working with children in care.

 

What is training?

Staff training is when staff come together to learn more about an area of their work, or learn something new to help them do their jobs better. Social Workers and foster carers all have to do an amount of training each year.

 

Being a trainer means being the person who helps staff to learn. Learning can happen in lots of different ways, so being a trainer is often really exciting and creative.
