Music - Resource of the week
Growing up quickly
We always worry about what children are learning in school, but sometimes they have responsibilities that stretch far beyond the classroom. The Carers Trust charity has created a set of resources to help teachers understand how to support young carers who may be looking after parents, siblings or other relatives.
What is it?
E-learning module. Interactive screens including facts and quizzes to educate and test users about the impact that caring has on young people and the challenges they face. This is a useful training tool that is ready to use in schools.
Information pack. There are 34 downloadable chapters dealing with issues such as behaviour, bullying, missing deadlines and bereavement.
Research report. A five-page document with good practice examples of leadership and training to ensure everyone at school knows how to support young carers.
