UASCs (Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children)

UASC Toolkit

This resource is currently being updated. Thank you for your patience.


Looking for something other than college?

The Post-16 team have put together a quick reference guide which includes various alternatives to college, including information relating to courses and activities as well as links to grants, bursaries and lots more!

Locations include Surrey, neighbouring authorities and a few further afield. Additionally, whilst the guide is aimed at Post-16 and UASC, some resources will be accessible to 14+.

Please note that this guide will be updated when we are made aware of new opportunities. If you feel something should be added, please let us know at virtual.school@surreycc.gov.uk

Big Leaf Foundation

In addition to educational support, we work closely with organisations such as Big Leaf who offer a range of support and projects, encouraging language through social opportunities and addressing social isolation. Please see Big Leaf's website for the activities currently on offer.


Flash Academy

Flash Academy® EAL is an online learning platform that can be used by schools and individuals at home, to deliver learning for students that don't have English as their first language. This learning can be accessed by computer, tablet or smartphone and all progress is monitored by the Virtual School to gain valuable insights and raise attainment.

When a UASC arrives in Surrey, Flash Academy will be offered to them as a means of educational support until a school or college place is found and will continue to be available to them to compliment their educational studies.
