Full Event Details:
Tickets are now available for this year’s Care Leaver Progression Partnership’s (CLPP) conference Supported Transitions: Achieving Better Outcomes For All Our Care Leavers.
With the Kent and Medway care leaver population ever-changing, this conference will investigate how provision in Kent and Medway might adapt to support the educational needs of our young people leaving care. Sessions will look at the complex care leaver population in our country as a whole, focussing on how we can make better use of data to help formulate our objectives.
As we increasingly face new challenges set out by events further afield, the conference will welcome input from a panel of young college students who arrived in the country as asylum-seeking children, sharing their experiences of the system. We will discuss how we might address their educational and career needs, alongside the needs of our existing children in care and care leavers. Together we will investigate how we can use our collective knowledge to generate and enhance meaningful processes for all of our care experienced young people.
This event is open to all but particularly relevant for practitioners that support the education and progression of care leavers in Kent and Medway. The CLPP conference will take place at East Kent College’s Yarrow Hotel in Broadstairs on Tuesday, 28 June 2016 from 10am – 4pm.
CLPP is a partnership of 19 organisations in Kent and Medway, joined in commitment to improve the post-16 education and training experience for local children in care and care leavers.
