Inspiring and supporting children and young people in care and care leavers to Higher Education

 

Young people in care and care leavers often face more challenges when considering their future than many other young people, but research suggests that with additional support and guidance, they can and do become successful graduates.

 

This FREE masterclass is for foster carers, social workers and other social care professionals who are in a position to support and encourage a young person in care who is thinking about applying, or has recently applied, to study at university.

 

This masterclass will provide practical information and guidance about:

  • Choosing the right course and qualifications

  • The UCAS application process

  • Overview of aspiration raising activities from Reaching Wider Partnership

  • Care Leaver Support

  • Finance information

  • When I am Ready

  • Research by CASCADE into the  educational experiences of looked after children
