RCET is committed to supporting research which enables future generations of Armed Forces children to have improved outcomes in their lives. We’ll work with researchers, commission specific research projects and raise awareness of their findings through our publications and partnerships.

RCET and the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science jointly funded a PhD studentship at the University of Stirling. Believed to be the first research of its type to be undertaken in Scotland, this research focuses on “Exploring the experiences of children and young people from Armed Forces families in Scottish Schools.” 

The main findings from this paper are available here. 

These findings along with other good practice will be translated into guidance for schools across Scotland. 

Literature Review

In collaboration with Strathclyde University RCET has recently commissioned a thorough Literature Review of all research involving Armed Forces children and young people in Scotland. The findings will be available in early 2021.
