Training and Education

Training and education play a major part of every soldier's Army career.

From the day they join and start basic training , to career courses where they  learn a trade and gain City & Guilds, NVQ or HNC qualifications, right through to the day they leave the Army and gain further resettlement training for their future career in civilian life.



Army training covers a wide range of trades from catering to piloting a helicopter and is designed to equip you with the necessary skills to help you do your job.
