Universities join forces to help forces veterans
Two Scottish universities have joined together to help armed forces veterans find new careers and adapt to civilian life.
Glasgow Caledonian University, Edinburgh Napier University and Veterans Scotland will jointly host an event today in Glasgow to exhibit how universities and colleges can support ex-military personnel and their families. In Scotland there are around 237,000 veterans of different ages, social backgrounds and length of service.
GCU and ENU are signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant, a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served in the military and their families are treated fairly.
The event forms part of the GCU-HM Forces Learning Partnership, designed specifically for military personnel looking to advance their career or change direction.
