we provide help and advice
Call us: 01772 894039

What to expect

You are guaranteed a warm welcome from someone who has experience and/or a considerable understanding of what it’s like to live and work in the UK’s uniformed services. Whether that be the Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force (RAF) or one of the three emergency services: Police, Fire and Ambulance.

The majority of our team have been in the services or have family ties to the military. Many of them are also highly trained and skilled in the health and well-being of former military and service personnel. You will be seen as a whole person, not just someone who’s looking for a job or a qualification.

We understand and appreciate that it can be a bit of a culture shock establishing yourself as a civilian again.

If you decide to work with us, these are the steps we follow to make sure your transition to civilian life is as smooth as it can be:

  • You will receive a face to face, informal, one hour’s needs assessment (telephone assessment can also be arranged)
  • We will map your service and civilian qualifications to any programmes of study or career you are considering
  • We will assist you in finding the correct pathway for you and you will leave with an action plan
  • We will follow up with your progress within one month
  • We will be a contact for you for 12 months after the initial contact
  • We will help you to form fill and give general guidance on access to University, employment, business start ups, apprenticeships
  • We will liaise with you and connect you to any other services that you and your family feel you may require
  • You will have the opportunity to participate in research undertaken by the College

If you would like to know more about what we can do to help you readjust to civilian life get in touch.
