What kinds of resources are provided?
The resources available from this website aim to bring the curriculum to life, helping students engage with a range of topical and controversial issues. Students will be challenged to think critically about what they discover, research the issues and form their own conclusions and opinions.
The resources explore the Army’s work, the political and geographical situations in which it operates, and the values and skills that are necessary to carry out work in demanding and often dangerous situations. They are not designed to recruit and they do not contain career information or enticements.
All the materials available on this site are free to use. Registration is only required so that you can be notified when new resources become available. The aim is to add learning material to the Resource bank regularly to provide a broad range of support.
Who develops the resources and how is quality assured?
The resources are developed by educationalists working in collaboration with practising teachers. All content is trialled and tested throughout the development process.
What is the role of the Army Careers Adviser (ACA)?
An Army Careers Adviser’s role is to raise awareness of the range of opportunities the Army has to offer. ACAs offer a variety of services to schools and colleges; from curriculum linked presentations and personal development activities to CV workshops and careers advice.An ACA can add real value to your students’ learning experience.
