Armed Forces Support

Proudly supporting those who serve!

We are proud of the opportunity to display our commitment to our armed forces, both within our role as a key employer in the Forth Valley area and as a champion of opportunity for all. Those who serve in the Armed Forces, whether Regular or Reserve, those who have served in the past, and their families, should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services. So, we Forth Valley College will endeavor in our business dealings to uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant.

Alistair McKean, FVC Training and Business Development Manager has recently taken on the role of Armed Forces Champion at Forth Valley College.  Alistair is currently working with the Marketing and Human Resources teams to launch a new web page, teams channel and staff benefits scheme around supporting our Ex servicemen and women that are already part of the team here at the college and further promote career paths within the sector to those leaving the service.
