The latest news from the Military Liaison Group (MLG Education) for the Highlands has been released.

Issue 18 is packed with information to promote and support the Highlands’ Armed Forces community. 

It includes details on poppy unveilings, the launch of a remembrance and mindful garden and several resources and information for parents, carers and organisations. Pupils and staff from Drakies Primary, Raigmore Primary and Muirtown Primary, in Inverness, are also featured, along with links to the Highland Council website and staff training opportunities.

The newsletter is published by MLG Education, a tri-service Highland partnership that is committed to ensuring all children and young people from Armed Forces families thrive in the area and suffer no disadvantage in their education due to being from a military background, whether Regular, Reservist, Ex-Service or Veteran.

The newsletter also promotes the partnership between National Education Officer Carolyn MacLeod MBE, who runs Forces Children’s Education, the Association of Directors of Education in Scotland (ADES) and the Centre of Military Research, Education and Public Engagement (ENU) with Edinburgh Napier University, who are working on a two-year research project, funded by the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust. The project is to develop a clear pathway to benefit serving and veteran parents and their children with additional support needs, when transitioning to and from Scotland. Work will be based on the identification of enablers and barriers impacting the child’s learning journey, wellbeing, and family life. This will empower policymakers with evidence-based recommendations to catalyse whole-system change.
