Supporting Service Children – Online CDP Conference for Schools

Monday 28 February 2022
3:30 – 5:30pm

Did you know that only 24% of service children participate in higher education, compared to 43% of the general population?

Service children are defined by the SCiP Alliance as ‘a person whose parent or carer serves in the Regular Armed Forces, or as a Reservist, or has done at any point during the first 25 years of that person’s life’.

Service children can experience disrupted schooling, less access to extra-curricular activities and challenges with the curriculum when transitioning between schools or colleges. The Thriving Lives Toolkit is a free evidence-based framework of seven principles to assess, develop and implement a support structure to best allow service children to thrive.
