Military to Mentors
SkillForce is the trusted bridge for Service leavers and ex-Forces into a new career in education.
In the last two years nearly 200 Servicemen and women have completed our Military to Mentors programme, a four-week practical course which gave participants the core skills and experience to work in schools or with young people. Almost two thirds have now found employment working with young people.
Our four- to six-week courses included qualifications (Child Protection and Safeguarding, Health and Safety, Mentoring, Life-Long Learning and civilian First Aid) plus invaluable, practical work placements in the classroom with SkillForce staff.
We delivered this programme with tremendous support from the Department for Education, the Royal British Legion, Help for Heroes (for courses for Wounded, Injured and Sick personnel), Knowsley Skills Academy and Endeavour.
WE ARE NOW REVISING THE PROGRAMME IN ORDER TO MEET DEMAND AND ADOPT THE VALUABLE LESSONS WE HAVE LEARNT.
At the moment, Military to Mentors is not accepting applications. However, if you would like to express interest in joining a future programme, please email Anam.Ahmed@skillforce.org. We hope to offer details of new programmes at the end of the Autumn term.
Alternatively, if you are a Service Leaver and would like to Train with Us using your Enhanced Learning Credits or similar, please contact Sarah.Annan@skillforce.org.
Thank you for your interest.
