The Service Children’s Progression (SCiP) Alliance is inviting schools to get involved in research around support for Service children by completing an online survey…

The research will form an evidence base for the development of a self-improvement framework for schools’ work supporting Service children. The SCiP Alliance are keen to work with partners across the country to ensure they reach as many schools as they can and make the resulting national framework representative.

The survey – which can be found here – should take between 15 and 30 minutes and schools may need to access school data while completing some of the questions. The survey closes at midnight on Friday 8th February.

The research is being undertaken on behalf of the SCiP Alliance by the International Centre for Guidance Studies at the University of Derby and includes a literature review and focus groups and interviews in schools. This work has been funded by a collaboration between six NCOP HE partnerships to support effective practice for Service children nationally.
