CELCIS is carrying out the first ever Scottish-wide survey of care experienced students. The survey, commissioned by the Scottish Funding Council, asks current or recent care experienced students about their experiences of going to college or university and how things were for them during their studies.
The findings of the survey will be used to influence national policy and support arrangements at individual institutions.
If you are care experienced and are a current student, or if you have been a student at any time since August 2017, we'd love to hear from you. Please tell us about your experiences of getting there and being there. Whether your experience is good or not so good, you can help us to make improvements to the information and support for all care experienced students.
A care experienced student is someone who is or was at any time in the past 'looked after' or in the care of a local authority (eg in foster care, kinship care, or residential care, or adopted, or received 'home supervision' from social work).
The survey is in the form of a questionnaire which takes about 15 minutes to complete. There is a separate questionnaire for college students and university students.
Students who complete the survey can opt to enter a prize draw for a £100 voucher.
The survey will close on Friday 14 December.
