Life, Learning and Achievement Resource Toolkit

CatholicCare has recently developed and trialed a Life, Learning and Achievement Resource Toolkitfor children and young people in care and transitioning from care. We wish to make this resource available to all agencies currently providing services for children and young people in care in Australia.

Research shows that the best predictor of successful transition into adult life for children and young people in care is level of educational attainment. Children and young people with higher education levels fare better in terms of being happy, safe and well, are more resilient, are more likely to be engaged in prosocial activities including employment, further education and training, and less likely to be engaged in activities such as drug use and crime.

The Life, Learning and Achievement Resource Toolkitallows staff and teachers to examine their practice in achieving educational outcomes with young people and prompts them towards strategies that are considered best practice.

The development of the Life, Learning and Achievement Resource Toolkitwas funded by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) under the Protecting Australia’s Children Framework.
