2015 Education Support Fund

The Directorate Children and Young People (DCYP) provides appropriate professional direction, support and advice in order to ensure that children and young people are provided with every opportunity to achieve the best possible outcomes and fulfil their potential. 

Service Parents, both Regular and Reserve Forces, are encouraged to bring the MOD Education Support Fund (ESF) to the attention of their child’s school.

The Education Support Fund (ESF) is now inviting applications from UK publicly funded schools, Local Authorities, State schools, Academies, Free schools and 6th Form colleges that cater for the education of Service children.

The fund is to help mitigate the effects that exceptional mobility and/or deployment of the Armed Forces communities have on schools and their children.  This might include providing support to Service children who have a parent serving on an operational deployment or help Service children who arrive in UK schools after the start of term to settle in.
Only publicly funded UK schools and/or Local Authorities on behalf of schools may apply.

The bidding process for 2015 was launched by Directorate Children and Young People (DCYP) on 1 Jun 2014.

All completed application forms are to be e-mailed to DCYP: by 16:00 hrs on 30 Sep 2014.
