Armed forces leavers: what career opportunities and courses for you.

If your armed forces contract is coming to an end soon, it’s the right time for you to start mulling over your options. Transition from the armed forces to a life in civvy street can be quite a challenge, even with all the help you have at your disposal.

Chances are that you will see changes in not only your personal life but also at any new job you are planning to take up. As experienced as you are you may find that some of your career options require skills and qualifications you don’t have – before you can even apply!

This is where we come in to provide you with a number of training options that will help your life at work. So what are your career options? Let’s have a look:


  • Teaching in continuing and adult education

Ex service personnel are often in demand because of the natural discipline they bring with them. Teaching is an excellent career opportunity where you can lead an active life and yet give back to the community. You have the options to either work with Adults teaching them about technology, sciences or any discipline you are good at, or you can discipline some rowdy brats as a boot camp instructor!
