nimbl has been seen as a very useful tool. Recognition was given to the Virtual School, but it was really helpful to show that this is a multi-agency strategy.

Gloucestershire Virtual School

Guidance for Foster Carers

Gloucestershire Virtual School uses Anspear CPD to deliver essential guidance and training for foster carers on mobile, tablet and computers. They recognised that the life of a carer can be very demanding and face-to-face training may not be easy to access given the demands of a family life. Anspear's CPD overcomes this barrier by giving carers the chance to train at their own convenience and by supporting the wellbeing of foster carers themselves. Awarding certificates of completion to foster carers has been significant as they can demonstrate to their fostering social worker that they are engaging with CPD. It is easy to overlook the need to praise adults in the workforce supporting children in care.

Islington Virtual School

Custom app for care leavers

Anspear has worked with Islington Virtual School to develop 'Izzy4U', an app targeting care leavers with guidance for leaving care and interactive educational content for curriculum catch up. The app name and logo were designed by Islington's care leavers themselves in collaboration with Anspear. Izzy4U also contains a custom guide for care leavers offering crucial information about local services and advice they require as they move towards independence.
