How do we train SOS parents?
SOS parents are carefully chosen and given substantial training ensure they are the right people to manage children who may have experienced very difficult early lives. Training and development for SOS parents depend on the cultural, social and economic circumstances in each region, and varies accordingly. Every prospective SOS parent completes two years of basic training. This is made up of approximately six months of theoretical input followed by practical training. Our SOS parents are constantly assessed to ensure their understanding of child welfare and care meets best practice standards.
