Lots of you will have met the VSK Apprentices at activity days or Children in Care Council meetings. They are really proud to be Apprentices and as it is National Apprenticeship Week (4th March - 8th March), wanted to tell you why they think apprenticeships are such a great opportunity!
Here at Kent Cares Town, we love celebrating your achievements and successes! Take a look at Josh playing the Piano at a Christmas Performance. He has only been learning for a short time and showed great courage and perseverance in preparing for this performance! Got something to share? Contact VSK_Participation@kent.gov.uk
At the end of November, Chelsea had the fantastic opportunity to take part in the Whitehall Takeover in London. She shadowed Lord Agnew, Parliamentary Under Secretary for the School System in the Department of Education. She wanted to share her day with you all so take a look!
Sophia wanted to let everyone know about our fantastic Super Council meeting in October. We had a great time discussing young people’s views of their Review Meetings, looking at the redesigned Kent Cares Town website and playing some fun games!
Sophia met with Caroline Smith, Interim Assistant Director for Corporate Parenting, to challenge everyone who works at Kent County Council to be the best Corporate Parents they can be to Children in Care and Care Leavers!
Young people in care and care leavers tell us that they don’t want to be defined by the fact they are in care. YAC members and our Apprentice Participation Workers made this film to dispel the myths and stigma around being in care. Let us know about your experiences by contacting us.
