The latest termly email to schools sent in September included information about the new British Armed Forces Learning Resource 2014 and a link to the online version of the resource. The Department for Education has not published a hard copy of the resource and has not sent it to any schools. The resource aims to help teachers introduce students to the work of the Armed Forces in Britain and abroad, exploring their role, history, current operations and what it is like to work as part of the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force. It includes background information, views and different perspectives from many longstanding members of the Armed Forces and includes lesson ideas, areas for discussion and links to other publications and information. We often highlight free resources but believe that schools are best placed to decide which materials they wish to use.
