About this Event

Join us for a one-day CPD event hosted at Goldsmiths, University of London taking place on Thursday 16th May 2024.

Collectively, we are coming together to encourage greater numbers of young people with care experience to progress to university; raising awareness of the opportunities available.

During the day we will be able to work with you to create a better understanding of the specific and generic support available at different institutions and how this can best be communicated to young people.

Our CPD event will help you as practitioners when engaging with care experienced young people to understandtheir individual journey and needs, and how best to respond to those.
