On 2 February 2023, the department published ‘Stable Homes, Built on Love’, our strategy for reforming children’s social care, which included a commitment to introducing a gold standard accreditation scheme for further and higher education institutions. We have established an expert advisory group, including the National Network for the Education of Care Leavers, to develop the accreditation in partnership with the sector and consider how it will work alongside existing schemes.
