 Armed Forces Covenant

The Business School (UK) Ltd is proud to have signed the Armed Forces Covenant.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.

We have a long history of working with the military community – our Business Development Director has a long and impressive service history, and our Operations Director has worked in pivotal roles at the juxtaposition between civilian and military education for many years.  Many of our associates are ex-service personnel, and we have a partnership agreement with DCLPA.

We were set up originally in 2014 to serve the education needs of military personnel, developing unique courses to enable those completing relevant military training to transfer those achievements into professional qualifications.  To date we have over 700 learners, the majority of whom are either serving or resettled.  We are approved for ELC funding for the majority of our courses.

We also run a number of short CPD courses designed to add value to military service through exposure to relevant topics not normally encountered such as customer service, marketing, finance and legal areas.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge that we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.

The covenant focusses on helping members of the armed forces community have the same access to services and products as any other citizens.  In fact, we at The Business School, go one step further by offering reduced prices to serving and ex-military personnel, as well as favourable payment terms not offered to other learners.

When recruiting we always start by exploring our military networks and connections.  We know through long experience that the skills, competences and experiences gained through military service are highly valuable and transferable, and that those personnel will work with integrity and to a high standard.

We are proud to make these statements and uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant.
