Level 2 Therapeutic Fostering Qualification (TFQ)

Level 2 Award in Therapeutic Fostering Qualification.

The Therapeutic Fostering qualification is aimed at foster parents and supporting professionals who work within the agency and who support looked-after children who have suffered early life trauma through pre or postnatal stress, neglect, domestic violence, and/or abuse. It is used alongside the Therapeutic Fostering Assessment. (TFA)

This customised qualification is accredited by the Nationally Recognised Awarding Body NCFE CACHE, once completed learners will receive a certificate from CACHE.


Not only will parents be able to learn and put into practice Therapeutic Parenting strategies, which will help them to develop a trusting relationship with their child, but they will also gain certification for our Level 2 Award in Therapeutic Fostering which is accredited by CACHE.

The qualification is mapped into TSD (England) and AWIF (Wales) requirements which can be evident throughout the courses and relevant workbooks the course provides learners with. Quality assurance is also covered through this process, to allow learners to complete their induction workbooks (AWIF or TSD) within the qualification.
