As Veterans we know that leaving HM Forces can be hard. While many veterans successfully transition to a civilian career, lots of us find being a civvy strange. FORces Logistics Northants mentors are all veterans that are now logistics professionals. They will help you to make best use of your military skills and attributes and settle into civvy street.
Mentors are available for people that have attended a Get to know logistics evening.
Apprentice Ready course
A one-day course for cadets aged 16 or more. It will introduce you to the many careers on offer in the logistics sector and describe the exciting apprenticeships on offer. You will develop a CV to appeal to logistics managers, and practice your interview skills. Managers and apprentices from logistics companies will be there for you to meet and question. You will leave with a personal development plan that will help you get an apprenticeship, job, or college or university place of your choice.
Apprentice Ready courses are held, in Northampton, on the following dates: to be added

For those people that have attended a Get to know logistics evening, the CV preparation and the Interview training workshops, and done a One-day company visit, Paid work placements may be available.
