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
Here are just a few of this week’s comments –
“I enjoyed the interaction with training facilitator, as he gave us plenty of opportunity to not only answer questions, but also speak amongst ourselves to gain further knowledge, understanding and confidence.
Independent research sessions give great opportunity to enhance understanding.
Hearing about people’s lived experience of mental ill health. The video of the suicide survivor was an excellent resource.
How interactive the training was – this led to the whole group fully engaged, the use of breakout rooms was a fantastic idea. The Tutor’s style of teaching / leading was fantastic.
I really enjoyed delving into the psychology theory’s around human behaviour. Such as Maslow’s theory on human motivation and the different types of leadership styles.“
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.”
