Event description

Description

Do you support a young person in care?

Are you a foster carer, social worker or other local authority staff member? Do you work to support care experienced young people in schools e.g. a designated teacher, SENCO, careers advisor or member of the senior leadership team?

Are you interested in finding out more about University and the support available?

The Higher Education providers in Greater Manchester are putting on a joint information day to give you the opportunity to find out more about university and the support available for young people. The event will include:


University Uncovered - options of higher education, applying, student finance, accommodation and the different types of support care leavers receive whilst studying. (AM Workshop)

Care Leaver Ambassador session - An opportunity to hear from care leavers currently at University, finding out what support they receive and what has been most beneficial in their journey through education. (AM Workshop)

Careers Choices - A careers consultant from the University of Salford will advise around finding career opportunities for graduates, tips on self-branding and making smart choices outside of the HE route. (PM Workshop)

There will also be an opportunity to tour the campus and chat informally to both the Care Leavers and other people at the event.
