Post-16 scoping research 2021
The FE sector presents a significant and enduring challenge because we know very little about Armed Forces student’s experiences in this phase of their education. Furthermore, the tracking of Armed Forces student’s post-16 is challenging and very few colleges are known to seek this data. The Service Children’s Progression Alliance community identified a low awareness and understanding of the challenges, strengths and pathways of young people in Armed Forces families in post-16 education. In response, the Alliance carried out scoping research and convened a summit of key stakeholders in July 2021 to consider the way forward.
