NNECL exist to support professionals working with care-experienced and estranged students through four strategic aims:

  • INFORM  we provide members with access to up-to-date, accurate, useful information for improvement
  • SUPPORT we build relationships with people ambitious to transform the learning outcomes of young people in care
  • CONNECT we provide networks for members to collaborate and offer members continuous professional development
  • CHAMPION we use our collective voice to engage with key influencers and policymakers to ensure our members’ experiences at an operational level are recognised and create positive and lasting change for our young people.

Why join? 

Members demonstrate an active commitment to the care experience agenda and gain insights and support to meet plans and targets for this under-represented group of students.  

Members proactively support the professional development needs of staff who work with students who have care experience or who are estranged. Helping them access up-to-date informationdevelop and sustain effective relationships with other practitioners and policymakers and enhance the impact of their work.

Members inform and influence policy by joining a network committed to transforming the progression of care experienced people into and through further and higher education.
