Help service students explore future pathways and their identity

For students from armed forces families, Creative Forces Day is a chance to explore university life and their identity as a service child.

What do students experience?

Meeting pupils from similar backgrounds, they'll take an exciting glimpse into the future, looking at pathways and the support available.

Across an action-packed day, which includes a tour around our city campus, taster workshops and interactive group sessions, they'll co-produce a pledge to make a difference for service children in their school community.

Is Creative Forces Day just for students?

Creative Forces Day is also for you. As a practitioner supporting service children and families, you'll explore a CPD session delivered by support experts, and network with other professionals in the field. You'll also co-produce a pledge with your students to make a difference for Service children in their school community.
