Care experienced children

The Robertson Trust has published a report evaluating MCR Pathways, a school-based mentoring programme for care-experienced and disadvantaged children and young people in Scotland which aims to improve school attendance, participation and educational attainment. Findings from data analysis and interviews with young people, mentors and teachers in a Glasgow pilot found: an increase of over 10% in care experienced pupils continuing education into S5 (age 15-16) and a 25% increase in pupils leaving school for college, university or a job.
