Shetland College UHI - Corporate Parenting

The Scottish Care Leavers Covenant is a bold step to make the changes needed to give care leavers the bright and better future they deserve.  While the educational outcomes for looked after young people are improving, as are their prospects of progressing to further and higher education, there is still a long way to go to close the attainment gap that exists between them and their peers. By endorsing the principles of the Covenant and putting the actions outlined in the Agenda for Change at the heart of our Corporate Parenting Plan, as corporate parents we will be better able to fulfil our duties and realise our ambitions for our care leavers.
