From creating a CV through to learning interview skills, researching and applying for jobs, CTP can help you not just with your first civilian job, but throughout your working lifetime. A useful first step is to create an CTP account at myPlan. Then read about getting started and find out more about their latest courses and events.

Through CTP Future Horizons, you can also access Plotr, a careers website. Whether you’ve got a career in mind or you haven’t got a clue, Plotr can help you discover your future and guide you to careers you could be great at. You can then use this knowledge to find the right courses, work experience, apprenticeships, jobs – and more – near you.
