Course Description

For pastoral care staff/staff with a responsibility for Young Carers in Junior and Senior Schools

This day will provide an opportunity to gain an increased awareness into the roles and responsibilities of colleagues in schools with regard to supporting Young Carers.  We are delighted to be working in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council and Edinburgh Young Carers who have been instrumental in driving policy forwards into innovative positive action and support.  

The Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 took effect on 1 April 2018. The Act extends and enhances the rights of Carers. During the course of the day an up-date on status/progress being made will be provided.  Input will be provided from colleagues from the City of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Young Carers, Colleagues in Schools and Young Carers themselves.  This is an excellent opportunity to network and deepen knowledge in this context.  Further, it will provide a stimulus to consider implications and opportunities for your own school context.

Whilst the provision is centred around work in Edinburgh, please note that event is open to all and will allow colleagues to reflect on their local dimension
