Soldier On is a not-for profit charity which supports Australian service men and women who have been wounded, physically or psychologically in contemporary conflicts. This includes conflicts after 1990, as well as serving members who were wounded in training or other exercises and individuals working for other Government agencies (DFAT, AFP, Customs).
Soldier On does this in several different ways, in an effort to make a financial, physical and emotional link with those who have been wounded.
Scope Training is honoured to have provided pro-bono services to this charity throughout 2015 through the donation of several positions on our face to face training workshops as well as recognition of prior learning assessments against several qualifications from the Business Services Training Package.
Moving forward, one of our trainers, Nigel Huckstep (himself a wounded veteran), will be providing ongoing RPL services to veterans as ongoing support to Soldier On.
“I was very impressed with the pragmatic and professional approach undertaken by Nigel with my Recognition of Prior Learning assessment. Nigel clearly understood my Defence service and how this translated to the context of civilian life.
The fact that Scope Training are supporting veterans affected by their military service through such a practical mechanism is a credit to the company.”
