Teachers Who Care 

What’s it about?

Teachers have a huge role to play in determining educational progress for children in care and care leavers. They also have the potential to make a transformational difference by being consistent and trusted adults. This training event helps teachers and other professionals in schools to understand the lived experience of children in care, particularly in relation to education. It gives an overview of the national picture of educational outcomes for care-experienced young people but focuses on teachers viewing every child as an individual and understanding the potential impact that trauma and adversity may have on them. The course also covers the educational processes and support in place for children in care and care leavers.

  • Lived experience of children in care, particularly in relation to educational impact
