There has been a change in the law which means that care leavers up to their 25th birthday who tell their local authority they have returned, or want to resume a programme of education or training after the age of 21 years will be entitled to continuing support from a Personal Advisor from your Local Authority. Are you:
- A care leaver aged under 25 years
- No longer receiving support from your After Care Service (‘your case is closed’) and
- Wanting to start education or training or have already gone back to education or training.
What is meant by a programme of Education or Training?
A programme of education or training is interpreted broadly and may include options such as:
- Basic Skills Course
- Numeracy and Literacy
- Further Education
- Higher Education/University
- Vocational Course
