Month of the Military Child: 101 Series

This April we’re marking Month of the Military Child with a brand new set of resources, to help young people from Forces families with their next career step.

House moves, new schools and new locations go hand in hand with military life. These moves often affect young people the most.

Young people from Forces families face a unique set of challenges. From separation from parents, moving house and schools, disruption to education and social networks, to being young carers – we understand!

This is why we have created Month of the Military Child 101 series, resources to get young people job ready. From CV tips to interview techniques, we have it covered. Sign up and receive our top tips straight to your inbox! 

Every week you’ll receive a shareable, printable PDF and this week we’re talking about How to Write a Cover Letter. What is a cover letter? How do you write one and how do you format it?

  • Week 1: How to Write a CV
  • Week 2: How to Write a Cover Letter
  • Week 3: How and Where to Look for Jobs
  • Week 4: How to Manage Your First Interview


This Month of the Military Child keep an eye on our social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn). We will be sharing insights from staff and public figures who grew up in Military families. Hear about their experiences, how the experience shaped their careers and any advice they have for those from a similar background.

The EM3 Veterans and Families programme supports veterans, spouses and young people (16 – 24 years) in the Surrey and Hampshire areas. Dedicated Advisors, who are from Forces families themselves, help uncover interests and aspirations, discuss a possible future in education and training and highlight the different pathways into employment. 

So if you are a veteran, spouse or young person looking for further support register with us here
