ADVANCE Network Higher Education and Further Education webinar – Tuesday 5th March at 11am-12pm
The ADVANCE Network is a group of collective Scottish universities and colleges promoting education as a viable option to the Armed Forces Community. The network is keen to highlight that any member of the Armed Forces Community can consider education and will be supported to do so by the institutions within the network.
Higher and further education opportunities of military spouses
Within the Armed Forces community, ADVANCE believe spouses/partners of current serving personnel should be given the opportunity to consider higher and further education to help them reach a positive destination in terms of employment and career opportunities.

The briefing session is an opportunity for participants to learn about the opportunities for study in Further and Higher education. The session aims to:
- break down the myths around study
- highlight the various study options (online, short courses, upskilling, on campus etc)
- highlight the funding routes, inform about the application process
- promote the support available once in uni/college
- promote that education can be a viable option for active service personnel spouses/partners/ family members
It is an informal session with a presentation for about 35 minutes followed by an opportunity for a Q&A for 20 minutes to allow participants to gain information relevant to their own circumstances.
While the session will focus primarily on the Scottish HE/FE system, it will still be relevant to those wishing to learn about HE/FE in England. ADVANCE is keen to promote this session to spouses and partners across the UK.
