The Minister for Children and Young People, Angela Constance, replied that Social Care and Social Work Improvement Scotland will have a role in ensuring adequate training is taking place including through Continuous Professional Development.

It is the responsibility of individual local authorities to ensure that foster carers are adequately trained for the services they provide.
