Young people behind a new resource for teachers

DVD shows how to provide support for looked after children at school

A group of young people in Aberdeenshire has launched a new guide for school staff and pupils, on how they can support looked after children.

The Young People’s Organising and Campaigning Group (YPOC) is behind the DVD. The group is made up of young people aged 12 and over, many with their own experiences of the care system. 

About the content

This new resource explains through real examples, some of the difficulties faced by looked after children at school and offers advice to both staff and pupils on how they can help them to get the most out of school. 

Chair of Aberdeenshire Council’s Education, Learning and Leisure Committee, and the council’s Champion for Looked After Children (South), Cllr Alison Evison commented 'This guide and DVD are the result of a huge amount of hard work by the YPOC Group to make sure Looked After Children have the best possible experience at school.' 

How will it be introduced?

A copy of the DVD will be purchased for every school in Abedeenshire, for use in staff training and induction. The YPOC Group will also collaborate with senior staff to develop new lesson plans to accompany the DVD.
