AFF SURVEY

Service families encouraged to share attitudes towards higher education

Recent academic research by the University of Winchester has indicated that four out of ten service children who have the ability to progress into higher education are unlikely to do so.

Leading military charity, the Army Families Federation (AFF) is working with the university to find out more from Service families on this issue.

Take AFF's survey
Families with a child aged 11-18 years are encouraged to take part in AFF's latest survey, which seeks to find out what type of school their child currently attends, and what plans the family has for their child's education following school.

AFF Policy & Research Director Louise Simpson said: "We need families to help us to build a better understanding of why further and higher education may not appeal. If families aspire for their child to attend further/higher education, tell us why, and similarly, if not, we'd love to know their reasons."

Parental influence
AFF is also keen to hear about the influence parents have had on their child's education, including their link to the Services, and their own educational choices too.

Share your views
To take AFF's short survey and share your views and experiences, go to https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/3GXGL99.

Survey closes 13 November.
