We're delighted to announce that there are now 100 Virtual Schools across the country whose children in care are using nimbl to access high-quality education resources! For dislocated children and young people, this suport is crucial.
Last month we launched two competitions for Virtual Schools and children in care! Read on to find out how to enter.
It’s National Care Leavers' Week, a week focusing on the needs of care leavers, seeking to raise public awareness about the lack of support for those leaving care.
Here at Pearson Publishing we are saying ‘Happy Birthday’ to nimbl, the powerful app behind our mobile resources for pupils and staff. In three short years, nimbl has grown to offer a diverse and full range of titles, while as always allowing effortless tracking and flexible offline learning.
Last month, BBC Three launched a new programme. ‘Kicked Out: From Care to Chaos’ follows care leaver Rebecca Southworth as she revisits her history in social care and asks why so many Children in Care are insufficiently equipped to deal with adult life. The programme is a shocking watch, to say the least. But it also raises questions about what we can do to support care leavers on the road to independence.
It's the fourth year we've been to the Virtual School Headteachers' conference and on Thursday George and the team enjoyed catching up with colleagues from all different authorities.
