Hidden children - service children

McCullouch, J. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Description

Student Identity and Preparation for Education (FE & HE). This presentation draws on research that shows that children from
military service families are around one third less likely to go to
university than the general population. During today’s 18 year olds’
education their parents have been involved in Afghanistan, Iraq,
Syria, Libya. This, combined with known differences in patterns
of mobility and deployment between branches of the services,
indicate the diversity of experience of being a service child. This
presentation will explore research findings from the education
experiences of service children.
