Supporting the Supporters
Event providers: The University of Manchester
This free-to-attend, annual CPD event is aimed at professionals and supporters of care-experienced young people, including social workers, foster carers, personal advisors and designated teachers.
Join us to find out the most up-to-date information about the support available for your young people who are care experienced in the run-up to, and whilst at university. Hear from current students and recent graduates who have lived experience of being in care and accessing university. Learn from about what helped and hindered them, and leave feeling more empowered about supporting your young people to access university.
By attending this event, we hope you’ll feel more confident advising the young people you support. Through interactive talks and workshops, you will find out about all things higher education (HE) including the benefits of attending HE as well as how to apply, and tips for navigating the admissions process. Information will also be provided on the specific support available to care-experienced students, and available funding.
