Service Families Benefit from CMI Membership

Service Families Benefit from CMI Membership

The Chartered Management Institute has pledged to support Service spouses and partners in gaining the leadership qualifications to help them further their career.

Ensuring that Service spouses and partners are not disadvantaged in finding and staying in employment due to service life is a key part of the Armed Force Covenant, which states that: The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly. The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) has sought to uphold this promise by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. In their pledges, the CMI support Service spouses and civil partners through their MOD Family Membership Scheme, which provides access to Leadership, Mentoring and Coaching qualifications, helping Service spouses to gain the key skills and professional recognition which can help Service family members to find employment. The Scheme is also available free to children of Service personnel (aged 16-18) and allows them to become a Campus CMI Affiliate with access to all the benefits of online resources, including study support.

Enhanced Learning Credits, Further Education and Higher Education scheme changes

The MOD promotes learning among members of the armed forces and the veterans’ community by providing what are known as Learning Credits, through the Enhanced Learning Credits scheme and Further Education and Higher Educaion scheme.  Both of these entitle Service personnel and Service leavers to receive financial help with the cost of their learning.
From 1 April 2016 there will be some changes to the schemes to make them more accessible and to enable people to use them to gain personal and professional qualifications in a more flexible way, both while serving and after transition to civilian life.

Tailored training aims to boost customer service

CarillionAmey employs 138 Accommodation Officers (AOs) including Senior AOs and Trainees, who are our key people helping you when you move in and out of, or during your stay in your Service homes. They are often the first ‘face to face’ contact families have with CarillionAmey.

We are aware that in the past, some of our AOs didn’t always put customers first. As part of our Housing improvement plan we want to make sure that this is put right and so all of our AOs have recently taken part in an intensive training programme which was aimed at giving them a better understanding of the issues that Service families may face when moving home. Here’s what you should look out for in your AO:
