Learning Away residentials: a parent’s perspective

Key features

  • Parent's views on brilliant residentials
  • Confidence, resilience and wellbeing
  • Maturity and independence

During the first phase of Learning Away, we asked parents to complete surveys about the changes they saw in their children post-residential.

Parents noticed that their children came back more mature and independent, having completed basic life tasks for themselves, and that these changes were sustained at home.  They also talked about how much more confident their children were, and how this confidence boost helped them try new things and be more resilient when they hit setbacks.

To bring the parents’ voice to life, we asked a mum from the Bulwell EAZ partnership to share her thoughts about her son with us.  Watch this film to find out what she had to say.
