We are thrilled to announce that Distance Learning College have been awarded with another award and this time it was the Nationwide Resettlement award for Best Academic Course Provider Catering for Service Leavers.
The inaugural awards ceremony acknowledged 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.’
But our commitment doesn’t stop there. We 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’.
