We offer practical and affordable training to organisations that work with looked-after young people and care leavers. We also offer workshops for groups of young people.
Training for professionals working with looked-after young people
Our training is designed in collaboration with care-experienced young people to ensure their voices and opinions are heard. They may also be involved in the co-delivery of the training sessions. This method enables the professionals on the course to gain a better understanding of being in care and how it can be improved.
Training sessions can be delivered online or at your venue/site once restrictions relating to the Covid pandemic have been lifted. Face-to-face delivery will usually take place in a full-day or half-day format. Our training team is happy to adopt a flexible approach to online delivery based on guided learning hours, with courses being split into sessions on different dates, if this if your preference.
Our most popular courses are detailed below but we are also happy to develop bespoke training packages to suit the needs of your organisation.
These are 1-2 hour training sessions for individuals and groups working with or supporting looked-after children and care leavers.

Workshops for young people
Become’s Support and Engagement Team offer workshops for groups of care experienced young people, developed to support them with both the practical and emotional challenges of being in or leaving care.
From Wed 24th February 2021, a free one-hour workshop for care experienced 16-25 year olds will take place fortnightly via Zoom, focusing on ‘Your Rights & Entitlements’. Workshops are available for group bookings subject to availability, terms and conditions.
