Service Families Benefit from CMI Membership

The Chartered Management Institute has pledged to support Service spouses and partners in gaining the leadership qualifications to help them further their career.

Ensuring that Service spouses and partners are not disadvantaged in finding and staying in employment due to service life is a key part of the Armed Force Covenant, which states that: The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly. The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) has sought to uphold this promise by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. In their pledges, the CMI support Service spouses and civil partners through their MOD Family Membership Scheme, which provides access to Leadership, Mentoring and Coaching qualifications, helping Service spouses to gain the key skills and professional recognition which can help Service family members to find employment. The Scheme is also available free to children of Service personnel (aged 16-18) and allows them to become a Campus CMI Affiliate with access to all the benefits of online resources, including study support.

CMI’s pledge offers a discount on their qualifications and membership for family members of Service personnel who are CMI members, and a commitment to support Service spouses or Reservists who they employ with flexible working arrangements, where possible. Chief of Defence People, Lieutenant General Richard Nugee is a CMI companion and participated in the signing of the Covenant at an event on 14 November. He said:
“The families of our Service personnel are an important part of the Covenant. We value and are grateful to them – the unsung heroes who support our Armed Forces. Knowing that the nation, and organisations like the Chartered Management Institute recognises this is extremely important and fundamental in making the Armed Forces Covenant work.”

Ann Francke, Chief Executive of the Chartered Management Institute said:
“We’re proud to sign the Armed Forces Covenant, and helping families of the heroic men and women who serve our country get the support they need to develop their careers. Thousands of members of the Armed Forces who’ve gained CMI-accredited qualifications have benefited from improved performance in their roles, as well as from building confidence and gaining qualifications to help them resettle into civilian life at the end of their military career. Now, their families also have the chance to develop their own skills and qualifications.”

Full details on what membership can offer military families can be found on the CMI website athttp://www.managers.org.uk/mod-membership.

DEPENDANT PASSES FOR BEACHLEY BARRACKS

The issue of dependant passes for Beachley Barracks has been a perennial problem and I would like to apologise for the inconvenience it has caused.

From next week new dependant passes will also be issued from the Welfare Office.  This is to allow access to the NAAFI shop and gym during their respective opening timings.  Passes can be issued to all spouses and children over 16 years old, of service persons living on the Beachley estate – regardless of cap badge, unit or service.

Children under 16 years old must be escorted on Camp and therefore cannot be issued a pass.  Passes will not be issued to temporary guests or family members who do not live in Beachley.  The passes will be valid for a maximum of 2 years, or until the end of your posting – whichever is the earliest.

The application and printing will be completed at the Welfare Office.  We will require the following information:

·         Service person’s number
·         Proof of identification of the applicant: passport/driving licence
·         Proof of address
·         One passport photograph

The old dependant passes will still remain valid.  Car passes will still be issued by the Provost Staff from the Guard Room.
