PAR Assessor Training Course 

A training course for new or experienced Social Workers assessing prospective adoptive parents

Our adoption training is written specifically for Social Workers completing PAR assessments.  Our training provides a comprehensive guide to the new social worker in completing an assessment. It will act as a refresher for the more experienced worker wishing to improve the quality of their assessments.

The course includes practical tips, guidance and information to the assessing Social Worker.
