Supporting Care-experienced Young People into Higher Education CPD, January 2024

A free training opportunity for professionals working with children in care and care leavers

This free training opportunity is for key staff involved in supporting children in care and care leavers, including advocates, social workers, virtual school staff etc. to learn more about supporting young people into and through Higher Education. We will explore pathways to Higher Education, opportunities for young people after they complete compulsory education, and help to demystify university and Higher Education.

The aim is for attendees to:

  • Feel more confident having conversations about Higher Education with the young people they work with
  • Learn more about specific opportunities and funding available for care experienced students
  • Have a better understanding of how to support young people in applying to Higher Education

The session will be led by Outreach staff from University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, and University of the Creative Arts, with Kent and Medway Progression Federation, and supported by care experienced student ambassadors.
