CDN has been working in partnership with several colleges, Who Cares? Scotland and the Open University Scotland, to develop the new Corporate Parenting in Colleges e-module, which is now available on CDN Learn Online.
The e-module introduces staff to the concept of Corporate Parenting and – through video testimony and case studies – to the experience of Care Experienced students. The module also offers staff the opportunity to reflect on and develop their own practice.
Colleges that adopt the module will be developing a workforce that understands that all college staff have a role as a Corporate Parent and a part to play in helping Care Experienced students remain at college and have a happy and successful learning experience. The module takes approximately 2 hours to complete and successful completion of the Knowledge Check allows staff to download a digital badge and completion certificate.
Initial reviews and feedback from our partners has been really positive, describing the module as “engaging”, “accessible”, “thought provoking”, “the student voice is very meaningful and powerful,” and “despite working with Care Experienced students for a few years, there are some really useful insights that I can draw on.”
