Caring2Learn is a research project to support children and young people who are:

  • looked after
  • previously looked after
  • vulnerable

We want to provide all our looked after children and young people with the foundation for them to:

  • have the confidence to go on to learn
  • be aspirational
  • achieve their full potential

Aims of the project

Caring2Learn aims to:

  • improve learning through knowledgeable care and learning communities
  • ensure our children and young people feel safe and believe they belong
  • upskill and support our carers and educators to help:
    • support children and young people in and out of education settings
    • support the wellbeing, emotional and mental health of all vulnerable children
    • encourage active participation in education and improve attendance
    • reduce the number of exclusions of vulnerable children
    • encourage higher aspiration and self-esteem
