MOD Assessment of Supportability Overseas

MOD Assessment of Supportability Overseas (MASO)

DCYP will continue to support where possible, Educational Clearances for overseas postings. The usual requirements will remain, and this includes the child’s current provision to complete the Education Overseas Supportability (EOS) Form. However, due to the summer holidays with UK schools being closed, this process may be delayed and with some instances Educational Clearances can only be issued once all the relevant information has been gathered.

Where a child is going directly to a MOD School overseas, the MOD School will support this process directly. (Please contact the MOD School)

Where a child is going to an overseas location where no MOD School is available, CEAS will support this process. (Please contact

Packs issued by Families Section will give further information on this also, e.g. children not yet of school age.

When additional needs have been identified, e.g. Special Educational Needs, then CEAS and MOD Schools may require additional information. This information is vital to allow the smooth continuation of children’s education as they move between schools and countries. Where further more complex needs have been identified, this may result in decisions around supportability needed to be made at a panel level. It is highly likely that these panels will only reconvene at the beginning of the autumn term.

Children’s education is of high importance and quality information about children’s needs are vital in allowing the smooth continuation of this. We thank you for your support.
