VSHT and CET Network: Interim Evaluation Report
Several local authorities in Scotland have chosen to allocate funding from the Care Experienced Children and Young People Fund towards the establishment and development of a Virtual School Head Teacher (VSHT) role, or a Care Experienced Team (CET).
This led to the establishment in 2019 of the VSHT and CET Network, as a forum for support, information sharing, and discussion. This interim evaluation report describes the developmental evaluation work which has been undertaken in support of the Network, and the findings in relation to the role of VSHTs and CETs both in the earliest days of the Network, and in the initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
