On July 1 substantial changes to the Oranga Tamariki Act came into effect. We need to be sure that the National Caregiver Training Programme modules reflect these changes.
We’re working with Oranga Tamariki to ensure that modules become available again as soon as possible, and we apologise for this disruption to your training. We are excited to be able to resume training with you in Term 3 2020 with newly written learning opportunities.
Any questions, or for any assistance please contact the Training Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0800 693 323.
About the National Caregiver Training Programme
These six hour workshops are free and open to Whānau/Foster/Kin caregivers, grandparents raising grandchildren and Permanent/Home for Life caregivers, almost anyone who is raising children not born to them. Limited places may also be available for Caregiver Social Workers and NGO representatives that support these caregivers. We recommend Building Secure Attachments, Child Development and Understanding & Supporting Behaviour as the three core workshops that all caregivers should attend.
We also offer two hour discussion session which are delivered informally to a small (4-10) group of caregivers. They provide a variety of useful and practical information as well as offering peer support.
