In February one of my team will be delivering a social media training session for a group of Foster Carers.
Now this isn’t a group of people who would have been on my target list for training from my team, however thinking about the needs of the group and the issues and challenges they have to face, it seems an obvious choice.
These are not DCC employees, they are Foster Carers who have asked for support and advice from our Foster Care team around the social web and the web in general.
This is a really interesting area as one of the main areas of focus the group want to find out about is eSafety.
We are not eSafety experts, nor in fact do we claim to be, however we will be signposting them to the excellent online resource and content from “think you know“.
We will of course share our learning from this session after the event, although has anyone else in #localgov done any training for foster carers and if so how did it go? I’d be very interested in hearing your views.
