AFF has teamed up with Wiltshire College, Army Headquarters South West and Wiltshire Council to create Project JEMS to help service family members in the south west of England into work.

It focuses on offering education and training opportunities that provide a pathway to employment.

WorkSkills explorer courses take an in-depth look at different employment sectors and give you a realistic idea of what they will be like to work in.

Get up to speed
For those of you who need to brush up on functional skills, Project JEMS offers an opportunity to study online, with dedicated tutor support and regular drop-in sessions.

If you’re not able to attend a course in person, you can take advantage of distance learning in fields like health and social care, professional development and childcare.

There are facilities at Bulford, Larkhill and Tidworth – and, wherever possible, courses are free to eligible candidates. Online courses may have a small charge.

To access funding, you must be aged 19-or-over, have lived in the EU for a minimum of three years and not be receiving any other funding for education.

Project JEMS is one of many training providers included on the Forces Families Jobs website.
