Jim spent 18 years in the RAF

 “I was previously an instructor at a phase 2 training establishment and Kingston Maurward College have been amazing in developing my civilian teaching career. The college put me through the final element of teacher training and has allowed me to gain qualifications in lots of different professional areas including teaching, sports, outdoor adventure and student welfare. This was my first job on leaving the forces, I have now worked here for 9 years and the college continues to support my development”.

Ben was a Royal Engineers for 24 years

 “I’ve now been at KMC since August 2018, employed as a Lecturer, after serving 24 years in the Royal Engineers.  Since joining the college has supported me immensely.   I was given the opportunity to meet with the Head of Department and a member of staff, who is also a veteran, before officially starting and this helped alleviate any concerns or anxiety I may have felt before embarking on my new career.  The college has provided me with excellent mentorship by senior members of the department and countless CPD opportunities which has not only allowed me to quickly progress through my training, but has also allowed me to utilise my existing skills as well as gain the new skills required to enhance the student’s learning experience. The support the college has given me has assisted in a very smooth and problem free transition from military to ‘civvy street’ – of the latter, I will always be extremely grateful to the college.”
