Hertfordshire Armed Forces Covenant e-learning
Aimed at public and third sector staff across the country who are likely to engage with the Armed Forces Community, this free e-learning gives an overview of:
- Who the Armed Forces Community are and what challenges they face.
- What the Armed Forces do on our behalf.
- What the Armed Forces Covenant is and how it can support personnel, veterans and their families.
The 15-20 minute session also highlights health, housing and education, which reflects the Armed Forces Act 2021. This places a legal obligation on public bodies to pay ‘due regard to the principles of the Covenant’ and requires decisions about the development and delivery of certain services are made with conscious consideration of the needs of the Armed Forces Community.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation ensuring that the sacrifice of those who serve or who have served, and their families, is recognised, that they are not disadvantaged and, where appropriate, ‘special consideration’ is provided to those who have given the most, or who are bereaved.
The training has been developed by Warwickshire County Council on behalf of Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire Armed Forces Covenant Partnership with funding from the Armed Forces Covenant Fund Trust.
