Get ready for the Greenhouse
The home for friendly learning
While opportunities exist, many barriers make it difficult for these young people to access and engage with education. About 9% of 19 year old care leavers are enrolled in higher education. This compares to 50% for all 19 year olds and around 37% of care leavers aged 17-18 were not in education, employment or training in 2022. This compares to 11% for all 18 year olds.
Educational achievements are major predictors of employment, income, housing stability, health outcomes and other life chances. Supporting the education of children in care aids their transition to successful, independent adulthood. So In 2024 we are pleased to be introducing the Greenhouse – a learning environment where we will provide a range of educational opportunities tailored to the needs and interests of the young people in our care.
