Career Transition Partnership

Formed in 1998 to support Service leavers in their transition from the military to civilian life, the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) is a partnering agreement between Right Management and MOD. The CTP also incorporates two ex-Service charities, the Regular Forces Employment Association (RFEA) and The Officers’ Association (OA), and exists to provide advice, guidance, vocational training and support to those leaving the military. To date, the CTP has assisted over 170,000 Service leavers with their transition to civilian life and supported thousands of organisations looking to employ ex-Service personnel.

The CTP provides flexible support from two years before discharge, through to two years after. They provide the tools that Service leavers need to market themselves confidently to employers and to get the most out of life outside the forces. From creating a CV through to learning interview skills, vocational training plus researching and applying for jobs, what we offer can help you not just with your first civilian job, but throughout your working lifetime.

Guidance One-to-One career consultancy, both before and post discharge, to assist Service leavers in finding appropriate career opportunities and how best to achieve them.

Career Transition A range of workshops on topics from setting up a business to CV writing and interview techniques. A number of career tools are also available through our website in myPlan to help leavers to keep on track through their resettlement journey.

Vocational Training The CTP provides a wide selection of over 60 vocational training courses to equip leavers with the skills and qualifications they need for their chosen career. In addition, we manage a list of over 450 accredited training providers who provide a comprehensive range of courses.
