University for Care Leavers – what’s it all about?

Posted on: 18 April 2018

A roadshow of events are taking place across the South West between April to June 2018 – specifically for Foster Carers, Social Workers or Personal Advisers who work with Looked After young people.

Each event will run from 10am to 2pm and provide attendees with information about what higher education is all about and how they can raise aspirations by attending this informal event.  Sessions will look at busting some of the myths around higher education, how to apply for University and student finance.  There will also be a student panel.
