The college recognises that looked after children and care leavers are a particularly vulnerable group, and our governors, senior management and staff are committed to ensuring that the quality of care and support for looked after children and care leavers provides the best possible opportunities for you to enter and continue on programmes of study at the college, and to make your aspirations achievable.

We at Southern Regional College feel we offer a strong package for care leavers. We welcome the opportunity to make a formal commitment to ensuring that looked after children and care leavers are provided with the best possible opportunities to achieve their full potential.

Southern Regional College student services team has excellent and developing links with external stakeholders, and will ensure efficient and strategic use of all resources to support and encourage care leavers.
