The University is developing education pathways for those leaving the Armed Forces, particularly those from lower ranks, and are reviewing HR policies to support Reservists.It is also developing a mentorship programme to help veterans with the wider transition to civilian life.

I’m enjoying the opportunity to film some case studies relating to the work Edinburgh Napier University does with those currently or formerly serving in the Armed Forces. This forms some wider work that I’m involved with stemming from Edinburgh Napier signing the Armed Forces Covenant in 2016.

A new Armed Forces section of the site will be launched at the end of June 2017.

If you’re looking to have a video produced for your organisation I’d love to hear from you.
