    Abstract

    This guide for practice is based on the key findings of research of Scottish Government-funded pilot projects in 18 Scottish local authorities carried out by the University of Strathclyde between 2006 and 2008. The guide focuses on four aspects of practice: raising the profile of looked after children; monitoring educational outcomes; advice on setting up a project with the aim of raising the educational attainment and achievement of looked after children; focusing on achievement and aspiration.
