Shout Out Advocacy – Chloe’s Story

Chloe was a young person with learning disabilities who had always wanted to study Child Care at college to Level 3. However everyone at her college said she could only study to Level 1.

An Advocate attended a meeting between Chloe, Julie (her mum) and Sue (her teacher). The advocate shared Chloe’s hopes with Sue. Whilst Sue listened, she was able to share the reasons why Levels 2 and 3 would be unsuitable for Chloe and Chloe was able to accept the reason for this decision.

Sue took Chloe’s wishes seriously and was able to suggest an alternative course which Chloe was more suited to but had not previously known about. Chloe went on to complete the course.
