Madeleine Moon MP says that the army must do more to ensure that those who leave, have the skills and recognised qualifications employers are seeking.
The Army are lagging behind the likes of the RAF and Navy in ensuring that its staff are equipped to secure civilian employment after they leave. Madeleine Moon said that RAF and Navy personnel had more transferable skills due to their technical training and were hence more employable.
Mrs Moon, member of the House of Commons Defence Select Committee, said that:
"With the Army, particularly the infantry, they are lagging behind in terms of transferability of skills and making sure the qualifications that are attached to those skills are ones that have an understandably recognised qualification at the end of their career".
