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.
