This strategy sets out the pathway for improving the Education, Employment and Training (EET) participation and attainment of Children Looked After (CLA) and Leaving Care (LC), enabling them to reach their full potential.
The strategy and related action plan aim to make significant improvements and reach aspirational targets by 2020.
The strategy has been developed in response to what the national picture about the life chances of CLA/LC; what the local data tells us in Slough in comparison with their peers; recommendations from the OFSTED inspection in Slough; internal reviews and learning from past practice.
Most importantly, young people in Slough have contributed their ideas and experiences.
The successful delivery of this strategy requires a commitment throughout the council and Slough Children's Services Trust (SCST) and strong partnership across wider external partners.
