About the role

Enquire (click here for more) is the Scottish advice service for additional support for learning. Our goal is to help parents, carers, professionals and children and young people understand pupils’ rights to extra support in school and early years settings. Our vision is that all children in Scotland are supported, included, and listened to throughout their education.

Enquire is excited to be running a new project until March 2025 funded by the Promise Partnership, to help keep Scotland’s Promise to our care experienced children and young people. The project will involve producing a multi-faceted, digital toolkit focused on care experienced children and young people’s educational rights. It will provide a central location for information, advice and practical resources for care experienced children, young people, and the adults who support them.

We are looking for a skilled individual to play an important role in the planning, development and dissemination of this toolkit, working in partnership with key stakeholders to ensure it helps to support meaningful improvements in education experiences for care experienced children and young people.

About Children in Scotland

Giving all children in Scotland an equal chance to flourish is at the heart of everything we do.

We create solutions, provide support and develop positive change across all areas affecting children in Scotland. We do this by listening, gathering evidence, and applying and sharing our learning, while always working to uphold children’s rights.

Our range of knowledge and expertise means we can provide trusted support on issues as diverse as the people we work with and the varied lives of children and families in Scotland.
