What we do
So, you can expect to be comfortable; well fed and occupied each day with outdoor, competitive activities many of which will be novel. If you are like the 400+ men who have stayed so far you will, we trust, go home having had a real holiday, away from all military rules, and with the certain knowledge there are many people who wish you well, appreciate you and want you to know it.
Ex-service men embarking on one of our training programmes will receive full board accommodation throughout their stay and the training starts at 9 to 5 each day for both the HGV1 theory studies and SIA badge qualification. Friday is test for both subjects and those men who successfully pass the driver training theory test can start the practical part of the course on the following Monday.
So, in an ideal world an unemployed ex-service man can start on a Monday morning and two weeks later pass his class one driving test and be employed almost immediately as, as a nation, we are approximately 60,000 lorry drivers short. Similarly, those embarking into the security industry once they have got their SIA badge they will find it easy to gain employment.
