Educators & Professionals : to help armed forces families to thrive

We support educators and professionals to better meet the unique support needs of children from armed forces and veteran families through training, advice and partnerships.

Learning offer for educators and professionals

You can help forces children who feel powerless in the face of change, lost in their new surroundings or anxious about what lies ahead.

Moving to civilian life can hit like a tornado for some children from armed forces families across Scotland and beyond.

We understand that while some will make a smooth transition, others may find it worrying, overwhelming and disorientating.

Learn more about how you can adapt your practice to better meet the unique support needs of pupils who might need a little help to adjust to getting used to a new school.
