star this property answer text <br /><br /><p>The overarching principles of the Continuous Education Allowance (CEA) are accompanied service and educational continuity, i.e. the claimant must be accompanied by their immediate family at their duty station and a child must complete the stage of education at the school for which the allowance is claimed. CEA is available to all Service personnel irrespective of their rank or assignment location.</p><br /><p>CEA was reviewed as part of the Strategic Defence and Security Review 2010 following which improvements in governance achieved a reduction of costs by around £20 million per annum along with an associated reduction in the numbers of claimants both in the UK and overseas.
