Approved Military Resettlement Training
If you're a serving member of the armed forces, or a recent service leaver, discover how we can help you launch your career in the fitness industry
Leadership, focus and discipline are characteristics that are instilled in all military personnel throughout their career in the armed forces. Interestingly, these traits are also what make successful fitness professionals, which is why for many, joining the fitness profession feels like a natural ‘next step’ for service leavers.
If you’re a serving member of the armed forces, considering leaving the military, or have recently left, our dedicated Careers Team will be able to provide you with impartial and confidential advice and guidance that is practical and solution-focused.
We’ve been supporting service leavers with military resettlement training for over 15 years and our team are highly adept at helping to ease the burden of this transition.
The Enhanced Learning Credit Scheme (ELCAS) is a Ministry of Defence (MOD) initiative that promotes lifelong learning opportunities for serving and former members of the armed forces. Depending on the length of service and the number of claims previously made, ELCAS will support up to 80% of the cost of any qualification at Level 3 or above. ELCAS will support multiple claims for a maximum of 3 separate financial years.
We’re an approved provider of the Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme and as such, we’ve demonstrated that we meet all the MOD’s rigorous procurement requirements for providing training and education to armed forces personnel.
For more information about how we can help you access your ELCAS entitlement, please contact one of our Careers Advisors today on 01772 641 091.

ELCAS will financially support serving armed forces (Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force) personnel and those service leavers still in their resettlement phase with completing formal, Ofqual regulated qualifications that lead to awarding body qualifications. Unfortunately, ELCAS don’t support CPD training, workshops or unregulated courses.
