How To Create An Effective Personal Education Plan For Looked After Children

The process of creating a Personal Education Plan (PEP) for Looked After Children (LAC) is a crucial part of supporting them to reach their full academic and life potential. By its very nature, there are several parties involved, each with their own areas of responsibility. Ensuring that all parties understand their role is crucial if the PEP is going to be effective.

To address this challenge, our training can be delivered to mixed groups of Carers and Social Workers to ensure that all roles and responsibilities are clear when creating a Personal Education Plan for Looked After Children. In fact, this course is for anyone involved in the PEP process for LAC.

This training ensures that the Virtual School are playing their part in fully equipping the team around the child with the skills and knowledge they need to carry out their roles and responsibilities effectively. Our ultimate goal is to promote positive educational and recreational activities and support children to be aspirational about their education, training and employment.

This Personal Education Plan for Looked After Children course ensures participants can:

1. Understand the legal framework surrounding the PEP
2. Understand the importance of PEPs and where they fit with other planning
3. Understand professional roles within the PEP
4. Improve the quality of the PEP and the outcomes for children and young people
