CTP Future Horizons

Resettlement support for Early Service Leavers (ESL) who leave the forces in the first four years, or leave compulsorily, within the Career Transition Partnership (CTP).

Early Service Leavers (ESLs) are those who leave the armed forces before they have served four years and those who leave compulsorily.  The Future Horizon Programme was developed by RFEA – The Forces Employment Charity in response to the need to improve resettlement provision for Early Service Leavers who were not eligible for Career Transition Partnership (CTP) support before 2015.  In 2015 The MOD recognised this need and funded the programme as part of the CTP Contract.  CTP Future Horizons continues to be delivered by RFEA.

CTP Future Horizons supports Early Service Leavers (ESLs) to transition back into civilian life, helping them to find and remain in suitable employment or access appropriate training, education courses and apprenticeships. Where individuals have wider needs, CTP Future Horizons connects ESLs with military charities and other organisations who can provide the support needed.

Future Horizons began as trial in Catterick in 2012. In 2014 the trial was evaluated: An Evaluation of the Future Horizons Programme, Infantry Training Centre, Catterick.
