Employment and training

The Armed Forces Covenant plays a part too
The Covenant overall is about getting a fair deal and removing ‘disadvantage’ from those who serve in the armed forces, or the serving family.
In terms of Employment, some 3,000 organisations have signed the Armed Forces Covenant – all helping to ensure that current and ex-forces personnel and their families get a fair deal when accessing goods and services as well as an equal opportunity when transitioning to civilian jobs.
The RAF FF has its own team of regional covenant managers and are always on hand to help and advise on anything covenant-related.
