Challenges and results
“With the help of H4H, the archaeological training has given me purpose again, I’ve found my military skills have helped me move forward as they are so transferable.
I’d like to help others who are leaving and may become a mentor supporting other veterans via Help for Heroes. Learning with other veterans has been an advantage as they speak the same language. This programme has also impacted on the wider family helping myself and the other veterans in their family units. Eventually I aim to embark on a Masters and to support other veterans and to work in the industry.”
- Former Lance Corporal Rob Steel
"This represents a great example of the relationship between Help for Heroes and Higher Futures, and demonstrates their continued commitment for our wounded, injured and sick service men and women. Amanda has been a catalyst in enabling Rob to meet the University entry requirements, and has support his application to access Higher Education."
- Darren Shorney, Help for Heroes Training and Development Manager
“I was approached by H4H to help review Rob’s CV to help ensure it could demonstrate that it had 60 higher credits in support of his UCAS application for Winchester University. Working closely with Rob we identified he was more than qualified to take his ultimate ambition forward.”
