Children’s Services Provincial Caregiver Training

Caregiver Training has been revised to more accurately align with current research, legislation, policy, Indigenous worldview and practices such as the Practice Framework, Signs of Safety, and trauma-informed approaches. The new modules incorporate Alberta-specific content and the licensed online training model Parent Resources for Information, Development and Education (PRIDE).     

 

January 2022 PRIDE Pre-Service was implemented throughout the Province, replacing Orientation for Caregiver Training (OCT). Pre-Service consists of 10 pre-recorded video sessions that applicants take at their own pace, online. It is required for all foster and legal permanency applicants. Kinship caregivers can take Pre-Service or Kinship Orientation. All registrations are processed through the Provincial Caregiver Training Team (PCTT).

 

April 2022 Caregivers will access Provincial Caregiver In-Service (Core) Training through PRIDE Online. This will include PRIDE e-learning modules, Alberta created e-learning modules, and registration into instructor-led modules.

 

Please review the available resources to support the ongoing recruitment, orientation and training of caregivers. If you have further questions or would like to register an applicant into Pre-Service, please contact the PCTT at CS.CaregiverTraining@gov.ab.ca .
