Warwickshire County Council, on behalf of the Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire Armed Forces Covenant partnership has launched an innovative e-learning resource for those who are leaving or have recently left the Armed Forces and their families.
This training programme has been designed to support those leaving or who have left the Armed Forces and helps in the process of adjusting to life outside of the Armed Forces. It addresses issues that are commonly experienced within the transition and adjustment process such as acquiring accommodation, employment, health as well as personal and family adjustment. It also raises awareness of the Armed Forces Covenant and the support that exists for veterans and their families.
Minister for Defence People and Veterans Tobias Ellwood said:
“I am very pleased to welcome this new resource focused on Service Leavers and Veterans. We know that the period of transition and adjustment to civilian life can be difficult for some individuals and families and this e-learning will aid them in settling back into civilian life. One excellent feature is the ‘Three Top Tips’ being shared from veterans of all 3 services as well as spouses who have made the transition.”
Cllr Izzi Seccombe OBE, Leader of Warwickshire County Council said:
“I am delighted that the Covenant Team at the Council have developed these fabulous resources for those who are leaving the Services or who have recently left. These resources will also help families supporting Service leavers and veterans. This work is part of the local partnership’s contribution to supporting the Armed Forces and their families and delivering on the Covenant promise to reduce disadvantage for the Armed Forces community.”
From here individuals will be able to work through different aspects of the module such as Housing, Employment, Adjusting etc .
