We train for a large number of Local Councils, Independent Fostering Agencies, Social Housing Agencies and Drugs Services. Since founding the company in 2015, we have been commissioned by several local councils to deliver training to both their Foster Carers and Social Workers. One such client is Lambeth Council, who after being impressed with the participant feedback from their first ten courses, went on to book a further raft of bookings through to 2018.
This is just a snapshot of four of the many agencies we support across the social care sector
Hythe House Support
Hythe House brought us in to deliver a raft of courses for their workers covering a variety of subjects including Preparation for Leaving Care, Impact of Bullying, Radicalisation and New Psychoactive Substances.
“We have worked alongside Scott Henery and Diane Morgan. We have found their knowledge and delivery of the training to be of a very good standard. Our foster carers liked the way they delivered the training; displaying excellent knowledge of the subject matter in a manner that kept them engaged.”
Tanya Calloway – Agency Manager at Hythe House Support
We have been working with Chrysalis throughout 2017 to upskill their Foster Carers and Social Workers on the subjects of Trauma and Attachments, Caring for Sexually Abused Children, Self Harm and Therapeutic Parenting, Making Placements Work, Education overview and Legislative overview.
“Scott is one of the best trainers we’ve had in the building! The knowledge base he brings to the sessions has been of great benefit to our carers.”
Karen Young – Learning and Development Coordinator at Chrysalis Care
Ideal have been utilising our expertise for hundreds of their Foster Carers and Social Workers. We have covered subjects such as Radicalisation, Gangs Awareness and Men in Fostering.
“Social Care Training Solutions provide us with very good Customer service, brilliant communication and accessibility. They provide our Carers with handouts for later reference and are prompt in issuing certification. Staff at SCTS have always been efficient in responding to emails and are always available for help and advice.
Our main trainer is Dan Packe. Dan’s training is delivered in a knowledgeable and relatable way to our Carers. Dan is very personable and always makes himself available to Carers waiting behind to discuss issues on a one to one basis.”
Sandra McMullan – Training Co-ordinator and Social Work Assistant at Ideal Fostering
We have found it highly rewarding to be on the training team of this “Outstanding” rated Foster Care Agency for the last two years.
“The feedback from our Foster Parents and staff after attending training delivered by Social Care Training Solutions has been excellent. They find the trainers to be engaging and extremely knowledgeable. Many participants have requested follow up courses in the future.”
Louise Branch – Training Co-ordinator, Diverse Care.

Scott is an energetic, highly committed training professional with 360 degree experience in his field. He is a highly imaginative and skilled trainer with an entertaining communication style which really gets the message across in a way that gets retained. I have no hesitation in recommending Scott to any organisation who requires either a bespoke or more 'off the shelf' training package to boost workforce morale, skills and productivity
“Best training on this subject I have attended in the last 30 years. Informative, engaging and fun."
“The training has really ignited something in the carers who have completed it. Some of them said they had incidences over the weekend and applied their learning, which resulted in a positive experience for both the carer and the child. Carers are literally buzzing following Scott’s face-to-face workshop!”
"I found Scott's training the most beneficial training I have had throughout my 15 years working in the drug and alcohol sector. I found his knowledge and passion for the subject matter to be inspiring and motivated me to improve both my skills and service delivery. I can not recommend the training highly enough and look forward to our team having many more training sessions provided by Social Care Training Solutions".
Referring to our "Self-Harming Behaviours" course: "I now feel that I would cope if this ever happened with a young person in my care."
“I now know how to help any LGBT kids in my care get the support and age appropriate materials needed to make them feel accepted.”
“I have so much more confidence and understanding of how to support these young people both mentally and emotionally. “
Social Care Training Solutions are the best company we have ever used. All the trainers and admin are very friendly, approachable and empathetic to Sunbeam’s training needs. They are also very flexible and 100% reliable. We evaluate our feedback as a percentage out of 100%. SCTS trainers always receive above 90% feedback, which is great!
"I cannot sing Scott's praises enough. This was the first time that I have used Zoom and I really hope that the Council carry on using it as a means of training foster carers and other professionals. If Zoom was used more I think foster carers would actually do more training. We certainly would. Scott's friendly and outgoing approach really came across and it definitely set the tone for a very relaxed training session. Fantastic :)"
Scott is an extremely experienced trainer with a reputation for his ability to engage and enthuse trainees and to develop and design effective training packages. He also has a strong commitment to improved frontline services as a direct outcome of training. This means that his research of the evidence base and attention to details is reflected in his work, in particular with regard to psychosocial interventions which are an area of special interest. I would recommend Scott to anyone who requires training in the field of substance misuse and in wider theories and practices around models of change and empowerment, including in connection with the personalisation and recovery agendas.
