Findings Summary Practice Paper
A phone survey was carried out by the CELCIS Education Team in October 2020 with the members of the Virtual School Head Teacher (VSHT) and Care Experienced Team (CET) Network. The purpose of the survey was to gather information about the role, remit, and responsibilities of the network members in their developing roles.
This survey was carried out as a continuation of work that was undertaken by network members in January 2020, which examined the roles and remits of individual members. The roles and remits work, and subsequent paper ‘Exploring the roles and responsibilities of Virtual School Head Teachers and Care Experienced Teams in Scotland, September 2020’ identified that there were areas of the role that would benefit from a more in depth understanding, particularly around the similarities and differences in the development of the role across the areas involved.
