We are pleased to announce that we are delivering new courses up and down the country in 2016. 

What is LifeWorks?

LifeWorks is a FULLY FUNDED 5 day course which equips ex-Armed Forces personnel with the tools to get into and maintain a civilian job that is appropriate for them.

Who is it for?

LifeWorks is available to anyone who has been in the Armed Forces, regardless of when and how long they served for.

Where is it?

LifeWorks is run at various locations across the UK and at RBLI's Training Centre in Aylesford, Kent. If someone attends a course in Aylesford, free on-site accommodation is available for those who live outside of regular commuting distance.

The timetable shows 2016 courses with dates and locations.

The transition to civilian life can be a challenging process for all Armed Forces leavers, and even more so for those medically retired due to injury, health condition or disability. With this in mind, we created LifeWorks, an innovative series of courses designed to build on existing skills for employment beyond the Armed Forces.

The core of LifeWorks is a comprehensive assessment of your background, skills and ambitions. By identifying and developing your transferable abilities, LifeWorks builds you an individual action plan and provides ongoing guidance to progress towards your goals.

Understanding the commitments that we all experience during times of change, RBLI have structured the courses to give the maximum level of flexibility. LifeWorks can be provided over the phone, face to face on an individual basis or as part of a LifeWorks course.

Learn how to:

  • write a winning CV
  • search, find & apply for jobs
  • be successful at interview

You will also:

  • Work with your coach to develop your personal action plan
  • Receive our ‘Toolkit’ – your own manual of information material to refer back to once you go home
  • Receive ongoing support through our telephone helpline for as long as you need it

The LifeWorks course also incorporates:

  • Coaching for Change – an additional two-day module designed to help you motivate yourself to achieve positive outcomes, understand how to develop and increase self-belief, how to manage unhelpful thinking and how to overcome the limiting beliefs and obstacles that could stop you from working.

In addition to the course, LifeWorks includes high-standard accommodation, catering on site and access to a range of local services for all delegates.

Senior Aircraftman Andrew Hughes faced a number of challenges during the move to Civvy Street. Following a back injury, Andrew found the guidance and direction he needed through LifeWorks:

"I had a really low opinion of myself before coming on the course, but the five days on it made me feel positive about myself again. Once on the course the advisors were absolutely brilliant. They can speak to you on a one-to-one basis, it wasn’t like a teacher-student relationship at all, it was more like a friend that has come to rescue you.

“I’ve just been lacking self-belief and that’s the main element this course has delivered to me. Self-belief and the tools to help me execute my plan of action.”

What have other people said about the course?

"As far as I am concerned, this is the best thing that has ever happened to me".

"I will never forget this course; it has been inspiring for me".

"I can see amazing results after this course".
