South Thames College will demonstrate our commitment to the Care Leaver Covenant through the following actions:

• All Children Looked After and Care Leavers will be allocated a support worker during their study programme who will support them whilst they are studying at the college and sign post to the relevant support.

• Ensuring that Children Looked After and Care Leavers have access to additional support, which includes welfare, counselling, careers information advice and guidance and learner support, whilst enrolled at the college.

• To ensure that all Children Looked After and Care Leavers are made aware of the financial support that might be available to them, for example help towards their travel, uniform and kit costs and free college meals.

• Working in close partnership with external providers, to help improve outcomes for Children looked After and Care Leavers and early identification so that we can put the support in place prior to starting their course.
