Recognition of Prior Learning and Looked After Young People

a Follow-Up Study [Research Briefing]

Alison Hennessy, Graham Connelly

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

Following on from a pilot and research evaluation in 2012, use of the SCQF’s ‘My Skills My Future’ (MSMF) toolkit was rolled out in East Renfrewshire in 2014. Training was provided by CELCIS, and feedback for the process was provided by the senior educational psychologist responsible for initiating the roll-out. The toolkit was used with any young people regarded as ‘vulnerable’, whereas the earlier pilot had focused solely on looked after children. The 30 professionals who received training were drawn from different agencies, including social work, education and third sector organisations. Feedback was largely positive, with many professionals reporting that they valued the toolkit; however, timing was said to be crucial, and summer term was not an ideal time for work to take place in schools. Use of the toolkit is continuing to be promoted and monitored by the local authority.
