Supporting LJMU students from the armed forces and military families - a cross-university approach
The aim of the session is to showcase the intentions, terms of reference and activities planned by the newly formed Cross-University Armed Forces Steering Group, in relation to one of the key aims of the group. An effective delivery model to:
- Support LJMU students who have served, or are going to serve (linked to Student Experience Plan);
- Support LJMU students who are families of serving armed forces members (linked to Student Experience Plan);
- Development of marketing, recruitment and outreach for veterans;
We are currently exploring how many veterans, current members of the military, or family members of military personnel are undertaking HE courses at LJMU. And developing an effective structure to support the transition into HE. From first hand experience, this can be a difficult transition!
It will highlight the planned activities to support this group of our student population, present some case studies from students and highlight the different professional service and academic input to the development of a coherent approach to support.
