Evolve Military College's New Burnley Centre Open Event Hailed A Huge Success


The college bridges the gap between young people leaving traditional education and beginning Military training



Evolve Military College's New Burnley Centre Open Event Hailed A Huge Success

Multi-award winning Evolve Military College has hailed the prestigious open event of its Burnley centre a huge success, with a record turnout attending the day at the new training centre in Burnley.

Visitors included representatives from Burnley Football Club, Burnley College, Lancashire County Council armed forces veterans and youth service teams, who were given a full tour of the facility, which is set to change the lives of many young people in the area.

The team from Evolve gave a full presentation of the benefits of the college, and several students gave a heartfelt testimonial of how it has turned their lives around. The centre was then officially opened by The Worshipful the Mayor Councillor Anne Kelly and the Consort Mr John Kelly.

Evolve Military College bridges the gap between young people leaving traditional education and starting military training and offers a range of services to schools and young people post-16 in the Burnley and wider Pennine Lancashire communities.

Evolve Military College delivers an alternative provision for young people who have left mainstream education through a unique course aimed at increasing their prospects of joining the armed forces and preparing them for life as a solider. The intensive qualification covers different areas of military life and students gain a valuable insight through a progressive training programme that fuses work experience, maths and English qualifications and military skills, values and standards as well as developing their physical health and emotional wellbeing. The end result is that they will be better equipped to face the military’s tough selection process and be equipped with transferable skills that will aid them through their military career – and beyond.

Situated on Athletic Street, the new training centre comprises of a completely refurbished facility with classrooms and exercise areas, as well as state of the art technology, to open up opportunities for young people in the area. The centre is staffed entirely by former military personnel.

Evolve Military College, formerly Military Standard Training was launched in 2016 year to bridge the gap between young people leaving traditional education and starting military training. It provides a robust, free of charge course lasting up to 26 weeks, to give 16-24 year olds the foundations and basic skills required for life in the forces. The programme offers an alternative route to higher education that helps young people to mentally prepare for leaving home for the first time when they join up.

 

Managing Director Andy Emmett said:

“We are absolutely delighted with the success of our open event and extremely excited to be able to offer our course to young people in Burnley. All of the visitors on the day gave us hugely positive feedback, and we look forward to welcoming some new students very soon.”
