Activity 1

As you go through the course, there will be opportunities to reflect or make notes on what you are learning. You can do this in your learning journal (if you have one) or make notes in the text boxes provided. This text will be saved for you to look back on later.

You can start here by making notes on your initial impressions of the course.

  • Do you use the term ‘Care-Experienced’ or are you used to a different one, such as ‘care leavers’?
  • How familiar were you with the concept of Corporate Parenting?
  • How relevant does this feel to your role?

In the next section we will look at the impact of care experience. As you work through it and listen to the stories of Care-Experienced people, try to reflect on what you would do if they were your child.
