Armed Forces Covenant
What is the Armed Forces Covenant?
To those who proudly protect our nation, who do so with honour, courage, and commitment, the Armed Forces Covenant is the nation’s commitment to you.
It is a pledge that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.
ETS signed the Armed Forces Covenant to pledge our support to those who serve or served, to their families, and the wider community across the West Country.
We are an Armed Forces friendly employer and pledge to support those with training opportunities, employment and advice and guidance.

Virtual Learning Experience
“I love the Tutor’s enthusiasm, their insight and the interaction with others on the course.
Liked the fact got to work with other people from other business and areas, as was good to hear about their issues/stories and learn from each other too.
I enjoyed learning about the variety of systems (e.g. the GROW model) as, the application of these models to my workplace, will help streamline work and support development.
I really liked the notion of recognising nervousness as Excitement. Not heard this before and I think I can get my thinking around that so whenever I am nervous I can see it as excitement.
Discussions around stress and Inverted U Hypothesis.”
Great location, friendly helpful staff a pleasure to work with everyone at ETS
“ETS have been brilliant and have offered me a range of courses to suit the career I am in. Doing these courses have helped me develop personally and professionally. I am using the knowledge that I have gained through doing these courses everyday in my work with customers and other professionals. ETS are flexible and can work to help you. If you need any advice or support between visits you can contact them through email which I found extremely helpful. My experience of ETS has been positive, whenever I see my assessor she is happy and raring to go. I have never met such a supportive assessor. I have nearly completed my third course with ETS and can’t wait to begin the fourth!”
“ETS arranged everything for me and even gave me coaching before my interview which was brilliant. I started employment on a one year contract, but that has now become a permanent one – what more can I say?”
“They always provide the understanding of what we require. I’ve tried other trainers, but they are not so flexible and supportive. I’ve recommended them to a number of other organisations.”
