FAQs around fostering social work jobs
If you’re a social worker looking for opportunities within fostering, we’re here to support you. We’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions, to give you all the information that you need ahead of applying for these types of roles:
A fostering social worker provides support and guidance to foster carers and the children in their care, building relationships to ensure everyone is supported.
Acting as an intermediary between the household and the fostering service, the role consists of regular supervision sessions with fostering families. These take place to verify that foster carers are meeting the required standards of legislation, to develop foster parents’ abilities, and to identify children’s specific needs.
Fostering social work jobs also involve administrative processes such as completing reports and assessments, keeping updated records, and creating training plans. As personal development plans must be followed to required timescales by foster carers, social workers ensure that all action points are completed on time.
When applying for fostering social worker jobs, employers typically look for strong communicators who can build relationships with a variety of people, of different ages and backgrounds.
A good fostering social worker should also be patient and resilient. Compassion and empathy are essential too, along with being able to sensitively pass on important information, to both professional colleagues and foster families.
You’ll need a degree or equivalent qualification, approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), to be a fostering social worker. A registration with Social Work England is also necessary. Fostering social work jobs may require experience in the field, as well as a full UK driving license.
