Military Resettlement

Excellent opportunities for ex-servicemen with subsidised courses

Brookhouse Training Centre has decades of experience helping men and women leaving the armed forces transition into a new career in Gas or Plumbing. We provide access to funding and do everything we can to help ease resettlement and get you up and running in your new career.

Skilled gas engineers and plumbers are in very high demand as key industries such as construction and energy grow. With a complete qualification from Brookhouse Training Centre you can take advantage of the current employment gap or take on the challenges and rewards that come with becoming a fully accredited self employed tradesman.

Transferrable Skills

In addition to the wealth of practical skills and experience you’ll bring to the table, your service time is also likely to offer experience in a range of “soft skills” desirable to employers:


  • Communication skills practised with internal and external stakeholders
  • Organisational skills
  • Leadership & management skills
  • High degree of professionalism
  • Problem solving
  • Health & Safety, Security awareness and best practice
  • Team working

All the hands-on experience needed to secure employment in the industry is provided as part of a Brookhouse Training Centre course – we guarantee a work placement that is local to where you live. Many of our ex-military students are concerned they don’t have relevant practical experience but this is not a barrier to entry at all. Take a closer look at our courses and speak to our team for more details.

Case Study

Corporal hits apprenticeship brick wall seeking to spend more time with family

Mark was in the army for 13 years but with a young family at home wanted to change priorities. After hitting a brick wall pursuing an apprenticeship Mark found what he was looking for at Brookhouse Training Centre.

The big attraction for me was the promise of a quality work placement that would give me that all-important work experience.

Without any prior hands-on experience Mark was concerned he wouldn’t be able to achieve a full qualification but thanks to Brookhouse Training Centre’s managed learning programme and guaranteed work placement he was all set.

They also stressed that the course gave the fundamental knowledge and skills needed – and that real-world learning would be our big chance to develop our craft. They were absolutely right!

Mark’s work placement evolved into a job opportunity and following up with him some months later...

I couldn’t have asked for anything better. I get more time with my family and I’m learning every day and enjoying it all enormously.
