Further Forces Programme
- Dr Stephen Corbett (PI)
In partnership with the Education & Training Foundation and Gatsby Charitable Foundation, Further Forces is a scheme to retrain Armed Forces Service Leavers to teach technical subjects, including Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) in the Further Education (FE) and Skills Sector.Service Leavers are supported to find employment, allocated a subject specialist mentor and experience high quality learning experiences while on their fully funded teacher training programme which is delivered flexibly. As well as offering Service Leavers the chance of a rewarding career, the scheme will also support providers, colleges, independent training providers, etc in recruiting highly skilled teachers and trainers in SET subjects where there is a recognised skills shortage.The University of Portsmouth will recruit Service Leavers and link them with suitable employment. The newly employed Service Leavers will then undergo an in-service training programme. Alongside this, the University of Brighton will provide mentoring support to ensure the new teachers are successful in their role.
