Your Career Outside the Forces

Forces Resettlement Training

Are you planning to leave the Armed Services?

Ritchies provide the qualifications and skills required for you to make a successful move into civilian life.

A growing number of employers in the Construction, Warehousing and the Road Transport Industry require drivers and operators to be fully certified in all aspects of their job.

Over the years, we are proud to have helped hundreds of your ex-colleagues make a successful move into the workplace.

We’re the leading training organization of our type operating today and our reputation for reliability and quality of instruction is the result of over 25 years experience.

Classroom work is kept to a minimum. We believe it is more important to be out in the vehicle driving and learning on the road than sitting in a classroom.


Ritchies Training Centre are very pleased to be able to offer MOD Servicemen and Woman the above SQA Level 3 Award Driving Goods Vehicles (Course Number GL 1 C 23).
We are registered with the Career Transition Partnership {CTP) and the Enhance Learning Credits Administration Services (ELCAS) and our ELCAS Provider Number is:1625.

This course has been arranged to enable Service Leavers to utilise their Enhanced Learning Credits (ELCs) to obtain a Level 3 Certificate. This course is ideal for those with some experience in Transport & Logistics and wishing to progress into Supervisory Roles with an option of continuing through to Manager Level, Diploma and beyond.

In essence the course is evidence based where you must be able to prove your experience by completing a Portfolio. To enable this, we offer a variety of Transport & Logistic based courses which during training would be consolidated as evidence by you the Trainee and witnessed by our Instructors who are qualified and registered Assessors, plus we also have our own qualified Internal Verifiers.

You may have already completed a large amount of Military Transport & Logistic Operations and you may have a vast amount of experience in Administrative subjects. With that in mind, you might be able to provide Evidence of Prior Learning (EPL), provided you have an up to date MOD Continued Professional Development (CPD) folder; which could be submitted and cross referenced by our Assessors during your course. The Assessor will then hold a Professional Discussion with you and map your future action plan.
