Special Guardianship Training

A special guardianship order (SGO) is an order appointing one or more individuals to be a child’s ‘special guardian’. It is a private law order made under the Children Act 1989 and is intended for those children who cannot live with their birth parents and who would benefit from a legally secure placement.

This course explores many aspects of the SGO pertaining to foster carers, as there is now a high number of foster carers considering and being asked to take on the role of the Special guardian by Local Authorities.
