Step by Step Familiarisation

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Quality provision of OOHC starts with quality foster care placements for children, and these start with quality carer assessments. Making good, evidenced based decisions about carer applicants suitability means fewer placement breakdowns for children who have already experienced enough trauma in their lives. Successful completion of this course leads to registration to use Step by Step (a suite of evidence informed competency based carer assessment tools).

Experienced assessors can register by submitting two de-identified assessment reports three weeks before attending this one-day workshop. Assessment reports must satisfy independent panel’s competency criteria (cost for review $300).
