LWB delivers a specialist culturally responsive foster care support program throughout Australia. The program is committed to ensuring carers and staff support children in a way that creates conditions for positive change. We use the Children and Residential Experience (CARE) model to guide our work with children and their families, and through training and ongoing support, we equip carers with the skills needed to care for and nurture a foster child.

The role has a strong focus on the functions of carer induction training, and ongoing foster carer learning and development. The position will work closely with local care teams and the corporate Learning & Development team to ensure CARE informed, quality, evidence-based learning and development options are available to carers and the broader care team.
Successful candidates will be required to clear probity checks including National Criminal History Record Check and Working with Children Check (where relevant to the position).
