Lancashire County Council are proud to be recruiting  Armed Forces Veterans for the 7th year to mentor and support young people in secondary education across Lancashire.

This is a challenging and very rewarding role.

It is recognised that the armed forces community in Lancashire have the transferable skills we are looking for to be positive role models to make a difference to the lives of young people in Lancashire schools.

This training includes, Mentoring for Young Learners ILM Level 3, Youth Mental Health First Aid, Information, Advice and Guidance Level 2 and the Award in Education and training Level 3, plus much more.

You will join a cohort of veterans, who all have a similar armed forces background to you. You will therefore benefit from the support of other veterans, training providers and the Council to support you through your studies and your transition into a new career.

To apply for this opportunity there are three main criteria which are: that you have served in the Armed Forces, you are a resident of Lancashire and that you have Maths and English qualifications either gained whilst at school or through career progression in the forces.
