Taking it to the Next Level is a 2 year Department for Education funded project, a partnership between the National Children’s Bureau and A National Voice.
We’re running a series of 9 events across the country for CiCC members to attend with their Corporate Parents. These events will provide an exciting opportunity for Corporate Parents to work with young people directly and share ideas with other Local Authorities to strengthen the CiCC, explore how Corporate Parents and CiCCs could work more effectively and raise the bar in terms of aspirations and actions to improve outcomes for children in care.
There will be opportunities for participants to showcase talents, express wishes and needs, be challenged and be provided with fresh ideas and tools and inspiration to build on improvements back in their own authorities.
Who should attend - Places are limited and therefore it is a first come first served basis with spaces for 13 Local Authorities per event, (5 places per Authority). These could be broken down as: 2 Corporate Parents (DCS/Lead Member/Senior Manager), 1 CiCC Worker, 2 CiCC Representatives. However, as long as each Local Authority brings at least one Corporate Parent and one CiCC representative, the other 3 places can be filled as the Local Authority wishes.
The event is free. Although Local Authorities would be responsible for their own travel costs, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
