Enhanced Learning Credits Partnership

We are delighted with our recent partnership with a trusted Enhanced Learning Credits training provider. The most recent success story was the selection and introduction of 18 ex-military candidates to a major UK construction company. The candidates we introduced will commence a fast track management programme at the beginning of July and will also gain an ELCAS supported NVQ in Construction Site Supervision, as well as many other recognised qualifications during the 10-month programme. Indeed, we are exploring similar opportunities with a number of companies across a broad spectrum of disciplines and different requirements.

The Enhanced Learning Credit Scheme is an excellent innovation by the Ministry of Defence that allows ex-military personnel to fund up to 80% of any recognised and related qualification that will ease their transition into ‘civvy street’.

Our client recognised that there was a need to introduce new talent into the business and appreciated the motivation, training, dedication and enthusiasm our candidates could bring. Furthermore, they were impressed with the robust selection criteria we adopted to ensure that we only submitted the right candidates for the roles in question.

We have proven our ability to not only identify exceptionally good ex-military candidates to our clients but also to be able to provide relevant vocational training. A fantastic opportunity for our candidates to not only secure great jobs but to also use their credits to undertake relevant training that will support their advancement for the future.

We will be recruiting similar to start another programme in January 2015 with selection to commence October-November 2014. If you are interested in being considered please contact James Smith on 01285 654566 or jsmith@first-military.co.uk

Moreover, if you are a client that has a need for new staffs with an industry recognised qualification then please let us know – not only can we find the right candidates, we can also arrange the right training courses through the right providers to give our candidates lifelong vocational qualifications and get the right fit for your business. Our intention is that all parties benefit.
