Throughout your career it is important to continually develop yourself and keep your knowledge up to date; this is particularly important for you as you transition from the military into civilian life. You may know what career path you wish to take but then again you may feel completely out of your depth and have no idea what you can and cannot do.


Scotland’s OA wish to give you the tools and the opportunities to boost your skills and knowledge to confidently find that employment opportunity. Our FREE training connects you with Employers, with those who have been in your shoes and it shall challenge you to think outside the box.


Our new training programme commences in January 2020 with a mixture of practical and online events that you can access. Please keep an eye out for this page as new programmes/events will be added throughout the year. If you are interested in attending one of these courses then please sign up by contacting us directly on  or calling 0131 550 1575
