We are thrilled to announce that Distance Learning College have
been awarded with Pathfinder magazine’s Resettlement Award for Best Academic
Course Provider Catering for Service Leavers.
The inaugural awards ceremony acknowledges those offering top quality support to service
leavers including: advice, re-training and employment as well as celebrating
the achievements of service leavers transitioning into civilian life.
DLC recognise the difficulties of leaving the Armed Forces
without any tangible qualifications as Military Advisor Martin Thirkell
explains: ‘We never had much guidance
after we left the services so our aim is to nurture our students through these
courses and reassure them that the skills they are learning in the forces are transferable skills however you do need the qualifications to back it up.’
Their commitment doesn’t stop there. DLC have signed the
Armed Forces Corporate Covenant, attend career fairs and work closely with
other organisations in order to make the resettlement process as simple as
possible and to ensure every service man and woman has the same opportunity as
the next ‘civilian’.
