More About Personal Education Plans

Central to the PEP are the needs and wishes of the children and young people themselves. Young people will be encouraged to contribute to their PEP and they can do this by speaking to their foster carer or teacher or by going to a PEP meeting with their carer, teacher and social worker.
A PEP meeting can be a chance to celebrate success - share what is going well at school, talk about any academic achievements met, any certificates gained, good memories of things that have happened at school. It is also a chance to set new learning goals, relevant to what the young person's interests are and look at long-term goals.
Through the PEP, children and young people will get:
- Lots of positive support
- An understanding of your goals and help to get you there
- Plan for your future
- Find out what additional help may be needed and how that may be provided
What to expect?
- It's the responsibility of the social worker to initiate the first PEP within 20 days of becoming looked after. It is then the joint responsibility of the Designated Teacher and the Social Worker to continue to review and plan every 6 months.
As a young person - you should expect to have your views fairly represented, this doesn't mean you have to attend a meeting, your views should be sought in a way most comfortable for you. E.g. talk to your carer at home.
