Personalised support for Wounded Injured and Sick (WIS) Service Leavers who are medically discharged and are identified for this resettlement pathway by their military unit delivered within the Career Transition Partnership (CTP)
Since 2011, RFEA has been providing expert support to wounded, injured and sick (WIS) Service leavers who, due to the nature of their injuries, face the most significant barriers to employment. Initially delivered through the Recovery Careers Service (RCS), this service has been funded by the MOD as part of the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) since 2015.
We employ an experienced team of Wounded, Injured and Sick (WIS) Specialist Employment Consultants (SECs) who deliver the case working capability of CTP (Assist). As a needs-based service, CTP (Assist) is structured and focused to meet the vocational and career needs of the individuals it supports.
CTP Assist operates from Defence Personnel Recovery Units (PRUs). Our SECs provide expert advice and guidance and have an unparalleled understanding of individual needs and aspirations in terms of the recovery journey. They are experienced at providing tailored and personalised case work. The opportunities we generate for Wounded Injured and Sick Service Leavers include familiarisation visits, education, training, apprenticeships, work placements, coaching, mentoring and jobs.
The UNSWIS programme is also available to CTP Assist clients. UNSWIS is a network of universities throughout the UK who support Service Leavers and Veterans who are wounded, injured or sick, or facing significant barriers to employment. The programme arranges tailored visits and work placements, giving an insight into the wide variety of jobs and educational opportunities within universities.
