Armed for IT Careers is designed to ease the transition from military to civilian life by providing a pathway to a successful career in IT.

It is our mission to ensure that service leavers, ex-military personnel and veterans who have an interest in an IT career can receive the education, credentials and job placement resources to be successful in this growing field.

Funding for Resettlement Training

As a Service leaver from the UK Armed Forces, you may be eligible for grants to contribute towards the cost of training courses and certification. These are provided by the MOD and depend upon the length of time you have served and whether you are registered with the various schemes. All Service leavers can seek advice on their eligibility for these grants from their dedicated Service Resettlement Adviser (SRA). The Career Transition Partnership (CTP) is the official provider of resettlement to the Armed Forces and their website www.ctp.org.uk, has a wealth of information on entitlements and training opportunities.

For those that qualify, there is also ELCAS funding which can be used for resettlement training with approval from your SRA.
