There is an exciting opportunity for anyone who works with young people to attend a free, online CPD session on supporting service children.

Online, Monday 28 February 3.30-5.30pm

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.

This event is for anyone who works with young people in Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire or Peterborough, such as: teachers, school and college pastoral staff or school and college leaders.

By attending this event, you and your colleagues will learn the following:

  • What is it like to be a service child?
  • Why do service children need additional support?
  • What is the Thriving Lives toolkit?
  • How can we better support service children through the Service Pupil Premium and the Thriving Lives Toolkit?
  • How can Make Happen/neaco continue to support you and your students?
