By degrees : the first year ; from care to university by Sonia Jackson( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 975 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By Degrees is a report from a five-year study following three successive groups of young people entering higher education from a background in local authority care. Theirs is a remarkable achievement, far surpassing the educational attainment of the majority of care leavers. The report tracks them through their first year of university. The main purpose of this report is to help local authorities fulfil their obligations under the Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000 by providing adequate financial and personal support to enable care leavers to access higher education and gain maximum benefit from their time at university. The report argues that local authorities must be prepared to provide realistic levels of financial support if they hope to raise the attainment of children in their care and for more care leavers to enter higher education. The universities and colleges also have their part to play and should be proactive in raising the aspirations of young people in public care and encouraging them to apply for places

In care and after : a positive perspective by Elaine Chase( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are approximately 69,000 children and young people in local authority care in Britain. While much has been written in recent years about poor outcomes for young people who have been looked after by local authorities, very little has been said about those for whom care has been a positive experience. Based on research from the Thomas Coram Unit, the text's contributors look at the views and experiences of young people and provide a more encouraging outlook of what those in care have the potential to achieve. Factors are identified which help to result in more successful outcomes and policy recommendations are made for enabling young people in and leaving care to triumph when the odds are stacked against them. By focusing on positive outcomes and experiences this book adds a new dimension to the current literature on local authority care of young people and children. Those working within the fields of social care, health and education and students on social work courses will find this essential reading and a welcome addition
Educating children and young people in care : learning placements and caring schools by Claire Cameron( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Children and young people in care rarely match the academic achievements of their pees and policy and procedures to address this inequality have not yet remedied the problem. Drawing on ideas from social pedagogy, the authors present a new approach-leaving placements and caring schools. They show that education and care must be considered integral to both out-of-home placements and schools. Packed with practice examples. It includes chapters on early childhood education and care, as well as alternatives to school and higher education, covering everything from birth up to the age of 25. It highlights the potential benefits of a range of learning opportunities, from drama and outdoor activities, to bedtime stories and mentoring as well as providing support for teachers in their role as carer. Chapters include key points, case studies, practice points and useful resources. This is a unique evidence-informed practical guide for students and professionals in the fields of social work, social care, psychology and education

"Services for young children have gone through a period of rapid transformation in recent years, which have been paralleled by great advances in our knowledge of early child development. However, care and education in the first three years of life continues to be a neglected area. Thoroughly updated to take account of key policy and practice changes in childcare provision, this landmark text translates child development theory and research into everyday practice. All the practical ideas in the book have been developed and tested in nurseries, family and children's centres and include the importance of providing opportunities for adventurous and exploratory play for babies and toddlers, understanding and responding to children's emotional needs and offering personalized and sensitive care. The book also explores different ways of working with parents and the role of early years settings and practitioners in helping to keep children safe. It includes chapters on:Childcare policy and services Planning spaces for living, learning and playing Babies in day care Heuristic play with objects Mealtimes Learning out of doors Leading and managing a childcare centre Involving and working with parents Safeguarding children People Under Three is an established practical text for all those training to work with young children or managing day care facilities.
