					New post to support Looked After Children
A Way Ahead Project Manager post has been established within the Leicester City
Council 16+ Team, to reinforce and build upon the positive effects of the Higher
Education Summer Schools and Further Education taster days.

Both of the above events are exclusively for Looked After Children. The overall aim
is to increase the number of Looked After Children entering Further and Higher
Education.

The new manager is responsible for coordinating these events to enable the greatest
number of Looked After Children to attend and benefit from these potentially life
changing experiences.

In order to support these aims the Way Ahead Manager will be working closely with
City Council staff including social workers, 16+ workers, RALAC ( Raising
Achievements of Looked After children) workers, foster carers, designated teachers
for schools, the 3 local Universities, Further Education establishments and
Connexions.
