The Armed Forces Covenant represents a promise by the nation that those that serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly.
The College has pledged to ensure that it will provide equal opportunities for armed service personnel and their families, both as an employer and an education and training provider, to help them transition into civilian life at the end of their service.
All 407 local authorities in mainland Great Britain and four Northern Ireland councils have pledged to uphold the Armed Forces Covenant. To date over 4,000 organisations have signed the covenant, including businesses and charities.
Lincoln College Group CEO Gary Headland said: “We are very proud to sign the Armed Forces Covenant and especially to do so at this salient time of the year for the Armed Forces.
“The defence sector, including the Armed Forces and the wider defence industrial base, is really important not only to the safety and security of our nation but also to the productivity of Greater Lincolnshire in so many ways.
“We value greatly the opportunity to work with the Royal Air Force and defence companies to create terrific career opportunities for young women and men through our Air & Defence Career College.
“We are also determined to play our part to ensure that Greater Lincolnshire is a highly attractive, first-choice destination for service-leavers and their families as well as defence-related industries.”
