The Officers’ Association (OA) is sponsoring the annual BSI Resettlement Awards, and is also part of the judging panel.
The BSI Resettlement Awards celebrate Service Leavers who successfully transition from military to civilian life, as well as the people and organisations that support them. The awards include Service Leaver of the year; Employer Committed to Employing Service Leavers; Service Leaver’s Independent Business Start-up of the Year and Service Leavers’ Training Company of the Year. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Manchester on 31st October 2017.
The OA is sponsoring the Award for Excellence in Work Experience Programmes for Service Leavers. The award will be presented to the organisation that demonstrates excellence in delivering work placement, work experience and civilian work attachment programmes available to Service Leavers or veterans. The organisations will be judged on how their programme is tailored to the needs of Service Leavers; the number of people supported; the range of opportunities available and outcomes for participants.
