Description

Education of Looked After Children Course for Foster Carers and Social Workers

Some looked after children and young people may not make the educational progress expected of them as appropriate for their age and school key stage. This is where the therapeutic relationship that foster carers can offer comes into it’s own. This training is aimed specifically at supporting carers to facilitate effective learning.

In September 2014, the Children and Families Act 2014 came into force. A new SEND Code of Practice covers children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities from birth to age 25. This has particular relevance to looked after children in terms of the responsibilities of care agencies and foster families.

Learning Aims:

  1. To develop an understanding of the academic expectations at each Key Stage
  2. To develop skills in supporting children and young people in homework and revision
  3. To develop an understanding of the Local Authority’s duty under 22 (3A) of The Children’s Act 1989 as to promote the educational achievements of Looked after Children
  4. To develop an understanding of the new system supporting children and young people with SEN or Disability
  5. (SEND Code of Practice 0-25 years)
  6. To develop an understanding of Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC) needs assessments
  7. To develop an understanding of Personal Educational Plans (PEP) and using them to support personalised learning of the child
  8. Supporting ‘Eligible children’ through education and training and encouraging further education or higher education
  9. To develop skills in supporting children through exclusions, expulsions and appeals
  10. To develop the skills to act as an advocate for children in placement

This course is for Foster Carers and Adopters as well as their Supervising Social Workers. It is also suitable for Residential Child Care Workers (RCCW) and residential team managers from mainstream, short-breaks and outreach services.

Need more time?

We recognise that sometimes groups need more time for discussions and group work. This can mean that a two-hour session is just not long enough to explore the curriculum and engage in question and answer sessions. So we are you offering the opportunity to extend the session by an hour to allow your trainees the chance to explore the curriculum fully!
