Develop and pilot a programme to support new VSHs

We are proud to be ambitious for our looked after and previously looked after children but in order to deliver on some of our work streams we are seeking the help of others who have a good understanding of the role of VSHs and the needs of care experienced children. If you would like more information please email We currently have the following opportunities:

  • Support for Virtual School Heads that are New to Role.
  • Research project on the impact of Pupil Premium Plus on Looked After Children.

Support for Virtual School Heads that are new to role.

We have carried out a survey of members who have been in the role for less than three years and have identified a need for a support package for those taking on the role of VSH. We are seeking proposals from interested parties to develop and pilot a programme to support new VSHs. This could include a coaching offer, online training, peer support, FAQ sheet and some resources to be available on our website. Consideration will need to be given to geography, costs and timescales. The final package will be delivered under the NAVSH banner with local authorities funding the support.

If interested please submit an expression of interest to describing your proposal, detailing your relevant experience and proposed remuneration (number of days and your daily rate). Please submit by Monday 4thFebruary 2019.
