This webpage provides information about Covenant training packages put together by other organisations.

Warwickshire e-learning

The Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire Armed Forces Covenant partnership has developed a programme of e-learning modules focused on particular audiences and needs. There are two modules:

These are aimed at front-line staff who engage with individuals and families on a regular basis. The training provides an overview of the unique challenges of Service life and how staff can help support the Armed Forces community. It will help staff understand and apply the principles of the Covenant at a local level.

It includes sections on:

  • What the Covenant is
  • Who the Armed Forces community are and what challenges they face
  • How the Covenant applies in real-life scenarios

The training also includes additional sources of further information and support, a downloadable list of useful contacts, and a video of a ‘View from the inside’. The aim is that it will help staff understand and apply the principles of the Covenant with confidence.

Housing

A further module is also available:

  • Housing, Homelessness and the Armed Forces Covenant

This module looks at how the Covenant applies to housing and homelessness. It explains through case studies some of the specific needs of, and issues experienced by, current and former service personnel and their families, and how they can be supported. Additionally, it includes information on legislation, sources of support, and housing agencies who work with veterans.

Further information

The modules are available for free for any agency or organisation. For further information, or access to the Housing module, contact Phil Deakin at Warwickshire County Council on afcc@warwickshire.gov.uk
