Ten top tips on supporting education
The Ten Top Tips series considers some of the fundamental themes in child care practice in concise, practical guides ideal for busy practitioners.
Doing well at school can make a huge difference to a child’s life chances. For looked after children, school can also provide much-needed stability and security. But on average, children and young people in care do not do as well in school as their peers. How can social workers help children to thrive in education, reap the benefits of the stability it offers, and reach their potential?
This book looks at some positive steps that workers and carers can take to support looked after children in school.
Pathways through education for young people in care
Edited by one of the world’s leading experts on education and looked after children, this anthology argues that education, in its broadest sense, should be at the centre of care and care at the centre of education. By bringing together up-to-date evidence from interdisciplinary research with innovations in practice that have been shown to make a real difference – both in the UK and overseas – this book helps pave the way for long-lasting improvements to the educational aspirations and attainments of young people both in and beyond care.
