CMVES respects the diversity, skills and knowledge brought to civilian life by ex-military and emergency services personnel. We work with the veteran community, emergency services and families to empower and motivate all in reaching their full potential in work, education, business and the transition to civilian life.
This will be achieved by providing multi-layered educational options, leadership, employment and apprenticeship opportunities whilst underpining this through innovative, high quality research. This initiative will include national and international collaboration with academic partners, businesses, third sector, charities and the Armed Forces.
The Blair Project is an innovative social enterprise working to fill the UK’s tech and digital skills shortage by equipping disadvantaged young people (14-19) in former mining areas with the technical and vocational skills they need to progress to well-paid jobs, careers and brighter futures. We inspire learning through a powerful combination of motorsport and digital technologies such as 3D printing. Set up by the family of an army veteran, we were given the Royal Seal of Approval by HRH Prince Harry in 2016.
Veterans in Communities (VIC) is an ex-service charity based in Haslingden, East Lancashire. We are delighted to share their latest newsletter with the CMVES community.
If you or your loved one is ex-military and has been diagnosed with Diffuse Mesothelioma then this information about the War Pensions Scheme will be of interest to you.
Have you left or are about to leave the Services? Have you considered a career in Health?
Hampshire NHS Trust in partnership with Walking with the Wounded (WWTW), The Royal Foundation (RF) and Career Transition Partnership (CTP) are hosting a series of Step into Health information days. They are giving service leavers an opportunity to undertake a work attachment programme which could lead to employment, or for anyone already suitably qualified, a guaranteed interview.
This conference is open to veterans and their families, those working with veterans and their families as well as health professionals and academics.
