Children's Education Advisory Service

Children's Education Advisory Service


The Children's Education Advisory Service (CEAS) provides expert and impartial advice about the education of service children.

Overview

When children of service parents move frequently from one school to another or between different educational systems obtaining appropriate provision can be complex.
We are a tri-service organisation funded by the Ministry of Defence (MOD), established to provide information and support to service families and eligible MOD civilians on all aspects of the education of their children in the UK and overseas. This includes supporting parents at meetings with schools, local authorities, and tribunals.
We are a small office with a dedicated team, including 4 Parent Support Officers who have a background in education. We have considerable experience of advising service parents on a wide range of issues regarding service children’s education.
