Role

Would you like to support children and young people from armed forces and veteran families to overcome unique challenges to education and learning, to realise their potential and pursue positive futures?

Work directly with children and young people from armed forces and veteran families in schools and community settings across Scotland to co-produce innovative digital and physical resources which help peers overcome unique challenges to education and learning. Support educators and professionals to better understand the lived experience of this community and enhance practice in meeting their unique support needs.

Develop and deliver a bespoke Advisory Service for children and young people from serving, reservist and veteran families and those around them, creating a safe, non-judgemental space for exploration around children’s rights, entitlements, advice and signposting relating to any aspect of their lives, such as the transition between wider UK and Scottish education systems.
