Help Service students get an insight into future pathways and explore their identity

Creative Forces Day is for students from armed forces families to explore university life and their identity as a Service child. Meeting pupils from similar backgrounds, they'll take an exciting glimpse into the future, looking at pathways and the support available.

What do your students experience?

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.
