Support for Care Experienced Students
Starting a new place of study after school can be an exciting time but can also be worrying and unsettling for some. Here at Leeds City College, we are committed to helping all care-experienced students get the right support, both before starting college and during their studies. We use the term ‘Care Experienced’ to mean Children Looked After or young people who have previously been looked after.
This includes care leavers, those under ‘special guardianship’ or other orders, or young people who are adopted. We can offer a bespoke support package to each student, along with a dedicated person to help meet their needs. We also work closely with the college’s SEND team to support students who have special educational needs and disabilities or an Education, Health and Care plan.
