Resettlement support doesn’t end when you leave the Armed Forces.You can seek help if eligible from your Regional Resettlement Centre for up to two years after your discharge date.
Career advice and guidance
If you attended a Career Transition Workshop or worked with a CTP Career Consultant on a one-to-one basis prior to leaving, you’re eligible for advice and information from your Career Consultant for up to two years post-discharge.
You can contact them by phone, email, or in person, whether it’s to discuss a job application, get feedback on your CV, or simply review your career direction.
You may also be able to attend CTP Employment Fairs or seminars, interview techniques workshops or other events, depending on availability of places.
If you didn’t access resettlement services prior to leaving, you may still be eligible for job finding assistance. To check your eligibility and find out more, contact your nearest Regional Resettlement Centre.
You may be able to access training courses delivered by the CTP at the Resettlement Training Centre (RTC), Aldershot and some Regional Resettlement Centres (RRC) on a standby/fill up basis depending on whether they are Contract Funded or Non-Contract Funded. JSP 534, paragraph 411 provides more details. Please click here for course information or contact the Course Booking & Information Centre to book your place on 02894 456 200.
