The SCiP Alliance Practice Group has published the first evaluation of Creative Forces events run for children of military service parents.

The report investigates data gathered from primary and secondary school children during their campus visits, particularly looking at their knowledge of and attitudes towards higher education.   

Dr Michael Hall of the University of Winchester, author of the report, said "The findings suggest that Creative Forces events have the potential to promote stronger knowledge of, and improve dispositions towards, higher education.  They also point to opportunities for HEIs to develop and strengthen their outreach work with Service children." 

The SCiP Alliance gave special thanks to Stuart Bottomley of FutureHY for devising the evaluation methodology for Creative Forces, and to colleagues at Abertay University, Bath Spa University, University of Winchester, University of York, and York St John University, the five universities delivering Creative Forces in 2018/2019.
