You made such an impact on the staff and foster parents - one of the best courses we all attended at By the Bridge. So real, so honest and so heart-breaking. Your life experiences moved us all and taught us to truly listen to the child and advocate for them, not just follow a set of rules and expectations. Wishing you every success. Thank you for sharing your journey to make a difference to other children in care ❤️

Highly recommend

Highly recommended training for both staff and foster carers. We have worked with Section 31 for a number of years and feedback has been consistently excellent from all who attend. A genuine, straight talking bloke who engages everyone from the offset and remains with them long after the course has ended.

Training & Support Services Manager - TLC Wales Fostering

We have been using Section 31 for a number of years now to deliver our more specialised courses and Scott is always flexible and accommodating in fitting in with our schedule. The feedback we receive from our foster carers and staff is ALWAYS excellent hence why we hope to continue using them in the future.


Compass Children's Services

Scott has contributed to our face to face training programme for a number of years and since the pandemic we have been able to offer his new on-line training portfolio to our foster carers and staff.  The take up for places has been tremendous. Scott's training courses always receive excellent feedback. He is a powerful orator and gives his audience a unique insight into the emotional inner-world of children growing up in care. The quality of his training is excellent and I would highly recommend it to foster carers and social care staff who work with children and families.

THE BEST Training

I will be honest and say that after fostering for 25 years I find training pretty boring and rarely learn anything new at this point. Online training I avoid where I can. So when I first attended Scott's training i turned up with the same attitude "lets get this over with". But then Scott opened his mouth and i was hanging on his every word. Scott brings a whole different method of training which i haven't experienced before and haven't experienced since. No PowerPoint, no suit, no patronising...Read more

Highly Recommend

I want to say a huge thank you to Scott for taking the time to come to Guernsey and give us what I feel is THE BEST training I have ever been on. Scott delivered such impactful and inspiring training in a brutally honest and insightful way which touched so many people in the room. His messages about what it’s truly like to be a child in the care system and especially about how the decisions made about his and his brother’s lives have impacted them, are so valuable in taking a look at...Read more

Director - Quality Foster Care
Highly Professional, Respectful and Reliable

I have known Scott King for approximately three and a half years. He is one of our specialist trainers for our carers and as I manage carer training, we have been in regular contact throughout that time. I also attend all training that our carers are given to ensure the quality of training is maintained. Scott has the experience of growing up within the care system and therefore has a real understanding of the child’s view of the care system. He is an engaging, warm and empathic individual...Read more

Anglia Fostering Agency

We have worked with Scott for the past 6 years or more. Scott has always been well received by both our fostering families and staff. He has an incredible story to share, which is both personal and very poignant. Scott has the ability to capture the audience and deliver his training in an unforgettable way. Scott has worked with us to design bespoke training for our fostering families, in line with our vision and policies. He is always up for the challenge and happy to tweak training to suit our organisational needs. Would thoroughly recommend Section 31 Training.

I have attended both face to face training and online training delivered by Scott King of Section31 Training.   The training is the best training I have ever had in my fostering role as it is straight from the horses mouth from someone that has grown up in care.   Scott shares his own experiences in a no holds barred way, opening up and sharing his often painful memories makes this training so poignant and unforgettable.  The training really makes you stop and think and strongly encourages...Read more
