In this video, Ambrose discusses the importance of proactive measures, resources, and outreach exercises to improve care-experienced young people’s educational outcomes. She outlines the NNECL Quality Mark as well as the role of Uni Connect in increasing the number of unrepresented groups going into higher education.
