Abstract

For young people in care the pathway through education can be littered with obstacles. Traumatic experiences sustained prior to (or as a result of) coming into care are often compounded by placement instability, school disruption and inadequate support. The outcome for most is a level of educational achievement, at school-leaving age, significantly below that of the general population.
