Description

Supporting Young Carers in Schools: Free training for local authority coordinators and young carers services

Don’t miss this free event providing essential training and support to local authorities and young carers services to increase the identification of young carers in their area and to increase school engagement.

This event will:

  • Provide an overview of the duties in The Children and Families Act 2014 and Care Act 2014.

  • Explore the role of the Young Carers in Schools (YCiS) programme, an England-wide innovation run by Carers Trust and The Children’s Society. Explore the whole-school approach promoted by YCiS and offer in-depth targeted advice on how services can use YCiS to engage school staff, maintain momentum and implement sustainable change.

  • Provide you with the key information you need to support schools to gain a Young Carers in Schools Award.

  • Highlight available tools and resources available and good practice in the sector.

Who should come?

This training is open young carers services across England and is aimed at Young Carers Service Managers and Schools Development Officers/Workers; as well as local authorities across England and is aimed at Commissioners/Coordinators and in-house Young Carers Managers.

As space is limited, places are restricted to two per service/local authority. If you would like additional staff to attend, please email: include@childrenssociety.org.uk.

We look forward to seeing you there!
