  • VACANCY: West Kent YR11 Progression Officer

    Could an opportunity to join Kent’s Virtual School for Children in Care be what you are looking for? If so, we’d like to meet you…

    We are seeking an experienced Education Support Officer to focus on the progression of year 11 students towards post 16 education / work related training for the West Kent Locality.


  • Ofsted has rated our Children’s Services as ‘good’

    This puts our children’s services among the top 30 per cent in the country and recognises that we have made substantial improvements since our previous inspection, despite some difficult challenges along the way.

    Importantly it also recognises the hard work of our amazing Children in Care and Care Leavers, the work of VSK and partner services/ professionals in improving academic and wider outcomes as well as providing opportunities to have fun and share their voice.


  • The VSK Rewards Nominations are open!

    Please complete the VSK Rewards Nomination Form 2016/17 for any Kent child or young person in care that you feel should be considered for an award in one of our seven categories. A separate form needs to be completed for each child you wish to nominate and you must fully explain the contribution or improvement that has been seen over the past academic year. We won’t be able to consider nominations if they just have something like ‘yes’ or ‘excellent’ in the box; we need the story behind.


Welcome to the Virtual School Kent Website

This website aims to be a one stop portal for professionals working with Children in Care (CiC) and Young Care Leavers (YCL). It is a place to access information, advice and guidance, share best practice and gain a complete picture of the multi-agency work which goes on in support of our CiC and YCL.

I hope that you will find this website useful and I would welcome any feedback on it as we continue to develop it so that it meets all of your needs.

Yours sincerely,

Tony Doran
