We are proud to be working in partnership with Nottingham Forest FC to help support Veterans’ to lead a more healthy and connected life through their ‘Forest Forces’ Veteran programme.
As a leading training provider we provide Veterans’ fully funded training to help them find meaningful employment after service. We offer a range of employability pathways including construction, security, customer service, manufacturing, warehouse, and logistics. No previous experience or qualifications required, just a genuine interest and work ready attitude to enable us to find employment on completion of our course.
Every learner on our course is provided with one-to-one support from application, training, and qualification in their chosen industry with hands on learning through to finding a job. We will fully fund any licences required such as a 5-year CSCS card or SIA licence. Assistance is provided for CV’s, interview techniques to preparing for job interviews. We assist with finding suitable employment based on the learner’s abilities, area of interest and location. As part of Staffline Group (the biggest recruiter in the UK) we have access to thousands of vacancies across East Midlands and nationally. We also work with partners and signpost assistance with additional funding, mental health & living arrangements.
Working in partnership with the football club Veterans’ will also become members of VETS (Veterans’ Employment Transition Support) hub. This includes coffee mornings, comedy nights and day trips to help bring Veterans together. There will also be a monthly guest from a range of Veterans’ charities such as the Royal British Legion, SSAFA, Combat Stress, Help for Heroes, Walking with The Wounded to name a few!
All members will also benefit from free refreshments and access to IT training and equipment support.
