The Educational Progression of Children from Military Families: National Innovation Conference
- Sparkford Road,
Timed to align with Armed Forces Day, this conference is open to all those who have an interest in the education of children from military service families.
Up to 4 out of 10 of those children from military families who might go to university currently do not. This is despite children from military service families achieving at least as well in their GCSEs as their non-military peers.
A practice and research conference, organised and hosted by the University of Winchester. It will see the launch of new Ministry of Defence-funded research exploring the educational progression of children from military service families. There will also be the launch of a film to support schools, colleges and universities in improving practice and outcomes for children from military service families.
The programme will include research and practice keynotes and discussions to identify challenges and opportunities for supporting the educational progression of this group of children.
