Your Local Capstone Team
Building Brighter Futures
Who do we work with?
We work very closely with our Local Authorities (Hampshire, Bournemouth, Poole, Southampton, Dorset and Wiltshire) with whom we have an excellent reputation. As a foster carer you will work as part of a team, alongside social workers, teachers and other professionals to make sure the best possible outcome is achieved for the foster child.
Education and learning
Capstone is successful in promoting Education. This years results 38.4% of our foster children were successful in attaining 5 A* C grades (inc English and Maths) this is compared to the National Average of 14% of children in care.
Foster carers and staff in Dorset and Hampshire have been involved in a 4 year long, Government backed project – in conjunction with other companies across the UK to explore the impact Social Pedagogy has on fostering services.
Social Pedagogy is a way of thinking, and offers methods that are, and become, a way of being. Largely theory, the idea encompasses a holistic, creative, value based approach that focuses on the potential of every human being and the values surrounding regarding them positively.
Those who attended the Social Pedagogy courses were able to experience the transformative learning process as a group, and found themselves able to express themselves in more creative way about their learning and deepening understanding of this approach.
