Deputy RD appointed in The South West
Deputy Regional Director
The Fostering Foundation South West
I’m excited to say that I’m starting 2016 in my new role as the South West Deputy Regional Director. I joined the Fostering Foundation nearly 3 years ago and developed as a Senior Supervising Social Worker and qualified as a Practice Educator. Throughout this time I also continued to develop my dedication to supporting and working alongside some outstanding foster carers to promoting improved outcomes for children and young people. As a Deputy Regional Director I am looking forward to carrying out new responsibilities such as becoming the referral co-ordinator, staff supervision, whilst still undertaking student placements and foster carers supervisions. To achieve the recent policy guidance towards professional development in a managerial role – I am also currently undertaking the NVQ Level 5 Management and Leadership Course.
I do however recognise that I have so much more to learn although I am looking forward to the new challenges and experiences that this will bring.
