The University has achieved the Buttle UK Quality Mark at ‘exemplary level’ in recognition of its commitment to young people in and leaving care.
Provision for care leavers at Liverpool has improved significantly since the institutions last assessment in 2010, when it was rated as ‘developing well’. The accreditation demonstrates that the institution has a robust strategy in place to ensure that students from a care background can access financial, pastoral and educational support to help them achieve their ambitions.
Dr Paula Harrison Woods, Deputy Director of Student Administration and Support and Head of Student Services said: “We’re extremely proud to achieve this award, which demonstrates our commitment to supporting vulnerable young people from care backgrounds. The Panel felt that the institutions provision for students from care has been strengthened further since our last assessment and identified some excellent examples of good practice in the report.
“This award recognises the hard work of the Care Leavers Group over the past three years, I thank the group for their time and commitment to supporting care leavers.”
In their assessment report, the Panel from Buttle UK praised the institutions support through the application process – in particular the inclusion of information for care leavers to all presentations to schools/colleges, and highlighted the admissions policy as a particular strength.
Susan Mueller, Quality Mark Manager, said “Buttle UK would like to thank the University for their commitment to supporting this cohort to progress successfully and look forward to continuing to work with them in the next three years.”
