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.

Our Pledge

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.

#Feedback Friday - 15.01.2021

Here are just a few of this week’s comments  –

I very much enjoyed being able to discuss and talk about a project I have been working on, taking the knowledge from the workshop and applying it to something I had experienced in work itself.

It brings a good deal of understanding when I can discuss and apply theories to something I have been working on as it brings in more context which is helpful.

Interacting and working with the Tutor and my peers.  The examples helped put theory into context and helped immensely.

Everyone’s attitude made the experience 10x better

I will find the Excel shortcuts and functions very useful.

“I think the whole team provide a fantastic service and are so on the ball and helpful. It’s been a real pleasure working with you all!”

Testimonial


“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!”

“They have a way of explaining things in a language that you understand.”
