Taking Care of Education

An evaluation of the education of looked after children

Despite developments in policy and practice, the academic outcomes for children and young people who are looked after by local authorities continues to be poorer than for their peers who are not in care.

This book details the evaluation of the Taking Care of Education development project, developing an understanding of the relationship between specific interventions and outcomes for young people. It also identifies ways of developing a culture within local authorities that can effectively promote the educational welfare of looked after children and young people, and concludes by considering the implications of the key findings for policy, practice and research.
