New guide for care kids

Have your say

THREE Sheffield organisations have teamed up to provide young people in care with information and guidance on how to make the most of post-16 education opportunities.

A new guide has been written by the University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University and Aimhigher titled Go Further Go Higher: a guide to post-16 opportunities for young people in care.

The booklet provides extensive information on all aspects of education, training, finance and qualifications.

It also explains the different options available to both post-16 and post-18 young people who are in care, a group that has often been under-represented in further and higher education.
