Education – Pupil participation

RCET is committed to gathering the views of children and young people from Armed Forces families. A student network has been established to provide opportunities for young people to come together to have their voices heard and listened to.

Teen Talks

Thanks to Armed Forces Covenant funding three Student Conferences were held in Edinburgh, Helensburgh and Inverness. The students discussed issues which were important to them, children’s rights and the work of the Scottish Youth Parliament. They also compiled a list of their top tips for their families, their schools and their communities.

“I think the whole idea of these discussions is really good as we get to learn about each other and talk about how having a parent in the Armed Forces affects us.”

“More events like this please!”
