This roundtable event has been created for those in Scotland’s colleges, universities and local authorities supporting care leaver students to sustain education – connecting you with your peers to reflect on the challenges faced and the lessons learned over the past few months.

As Scotland’s membership organisation for all those involved in the lives of young people leaving care, we are uniquely able to bring you together with those working in local authority throughcare and aftercare teams supporting care leavers to access and sustain education.

We know from our members that the pandemic has shed new light on the issues faced by young people leaving care and making the transition to adulthood, including financial precarity, loneliness, mental health issues and digital exclusion. Now we want to hear the perspective of those who are supporting care leavers to access and sustain education.

As well facilitating an opportunity to discuss policy and practice issues with your peers, we will also:

  • Be joined by a representative from the Scottish Government’s Scottish Attainment Challenge Policy Unit to discuss how we can ensure the Care Experienced Children and Young People Fund can be used to support those aged up to 26 to sustain education beyond school.
  • Be joined by a representative of SAAS, a Staf member organisation, to contribute to the development of their Corporate Parenting Plan.
