S.P.E.E.D Project

The SPEED Project will offer employability support and explore volunteering opportunities for the partners and spouses of serving Armed Forces members in Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland (LLR), empowering you to take positive steps toward new opportunities.

Support may include:

  • Volunteering Support to gain work experience with regular volunteering.
  • Employability skills – CV writing, job searches, cover letter/ personal statement, interview techniques, and more
  • Apprenticeships – Explore apprenticeship opportunities.
  • Education – Learn new skills, update skills, by training with local providers.
  • Employment – Return to employment or furthering career ambitions.
  • Signposting to other local agencies in the LLR area for additional support to meet individual’s specific needs.

Partners and spouses of Armed Forces personnel possess a wealth of skills, knowledge, and experience. We aim to help you build on these strengths and support you in accessing training, education, or employment opportunities.
Join us on a journey to achieve your personal goals – we’re here to support and guide you every step of the way.
