At present, looked after children have a 46% attainment rate at Key Stage 3 - compared to the average of all children which is 81%. 40% of 19-year-old care leavers are not in education, employment or training (NEETdefinition).

The Welsh Government’s target is for 75% of care leavers on their 19th birthday to be in education employment or training by 2018.

Learning and Work Institute, working with the Welsh Government, has developed a new way for learning providers to monitor how they work with looked after young people and care leavers.

In the resource, they will find examples of good practice, reflective questions and an action planning tool to assess current performance.
