Educators & Professionals

Do you work children and young people from armed forces and veteran families?

Young people from armed forces and veteran families have told us that educators and professionals don’t always understand the lives they lead and this can impact education and learning, mental health and wellbeing and so much more.

Professional Learning Activity (PLA)

Work through our digital continual professional learning (cpd) resource for educators and professionals below to better understand the unique experiences of children and young people from the armed forces community and how to adapt your practice to meet their unique support needs.

Complete our PLA modules in your own time. We have recorded a series of podcasts to provide a little background information too.

Face-to-Face Training

We visit schools across Scotland to deliver presentations and short-courses to help senior leadership, teachers and wider staff to develop effective strategies to help children and young people from this community overcome unique challenges when it comes to education and learning.


We are working with children and young people to co-produce a new set of education and learning resources which aim to support over 12,500 peers across Scotland, as well as to provide lots of helpful information and tools for educators and professionals.

We hope to have our resources ready by Summer 2023.

Forces Life Board Game & Comic Book

We co-produced a board game and comic with young people from armed forces and veteran families to help educators and professionals better understand the lives they lead.

We have produced our Forces Life Board Game and Comic Book, thanks to funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust and ABF: The Soldier’s Charity.

This is a free resource available to schools – order now while stocks last.
