Creative Forces days - an evaluated model of tailored university outreach

The SCiP Alliance Hub network coordinates resources and evaluation support for a model of university outreach in support of young people in Armed Forces families.

A Creative Forces day gives Higher Education Institutions an opportunity to bring Service Children from a variety of schools together to experience a day on a university campus and explore their identity as Service Children. It is also an opportunity to build the capacity of schools to understand and support their Service Children.

Creative Forces days at universities across the country were evaluated using the collaboratively designed tool linked below through 2022-2023. A national evaluation process, led by the University of Plymouth, collated and analysed the national dataset and published a collaborative report to inform the future development of the programme.
