Adoption UK's Training aims to help both parents and professionals who support adopted children (and those in other forms of permanence) with the issues faced by children who have had a difficult start in life and may be experiencing the effects of developmental trauma.

In England we enable parents to access training in their local area by providing information on the Adoption Support Fund. Some parents also encourage their child’s school to have training via the Pupil Premium.

In Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, different routes to accessing training apply. Please contact the relevant office for further details here or contact the central Training Team

You can access our training via your local authority adoption team who purchases the training from Adoption UK for 16-20 (depending on the training) adoptive parents.

This would be held in your area at a suitable venue and your agency would invite their parents to attend. This might be held on weekdays or Saturdays and Adoption UK supplies a professional Trainer, who is also an adoptive parent, and all the training materials required.
