Helping children achieve and enjoy what they do
We place a strong emphasis on the promotion of education and the achievement of children and young people, as is reflected in our outcomes. Educational advisers are available in our teams to work with children and young people in school or in their home environment, if required and agreed.
“98.8% of children and young people are in education, employment or training”
Swiis Annual Report 2012
The support of carers and the teams promotes the educational attainment of children and young people, improves communication with schools and contributes to placement stability and improved outcomes for children and young people.
“attendance of Swiis children and young people at school was higher than the national average.”
