Children’s Services PRIDE Pre-Service Caregiver Training (Replacing Orientation for Caregiver Training (OCT) January 2022

PRIDE Pre-Service launches throughout the Province on January 10, 2022 replacing previous Orientation for Caregiver training (OCT). PRIDE Pre-Service is required for all foster care and adoptive applicants. It is an option for Kinship caregivers. All registrations are processed through the Provincial Caregiver Training Team (PCTT).

PRIDE Pre-Service uses an online delivery model, which is navigated by the applicant at their convenience (asynchronous). The ‘hosts’ or trainers of PRIDE are video recorded and provide narration and direction throughout the training. The training includes resources, videos, interactive and reflective activities and a workbook for participants.
