The Learning & Work Institute believe that everyone has a responsibility to enable care leavers, many of whom have had very difficult experiences as a child, to have excellent opportunities as they make the transition into independent adult life.

Employers play a crucial role to play in this.

Their guide,  Building Successful Careers Employers Guide to Supporting Care Leavers in the Workplace, aims to highlight ways in which employers of all sizes, and from all sectors of the economy, can make a difference in supporting care leavers to develop the skills, experience and confidence they need to gain, stay and progress in work.

It includes information about care leavers and hints and tips for employers to support them at each stage of their employment: pre-employment, recruitment and selection, ongoing support and progression.
