Career Transition Partnership
We are extremely proud to be able to announce that we have recently become a ‘Preferred Supplier’ to the MOD’s Career Transition Partnership Programme (CTP) for Service Leavers. ‘Lighthouse’ views this as an exciting opportunity and we now look forward to working with the CTP and Service Leavers to deliver training courses to assist individual resettlement plans. Leaving a secure working environment like the Navy, Army or the RAF on the road to becoming a civilian can be daunting and a worry, we will endeavour to assist in this process to ease any concerns the Service Leaver may have.
If any prospective employers would like to meet any of these individuals as they filter through on our courses please do not hesitate to contact us as we would be happy to make any introductions necessary. Employers should try not to miss an opportunity to employ a well trained, self disciplined Ex HM Forces employee.
