University awards for pupils at the Royal Hospital School
In 2015 Greenwich Hospital started to offer funding for tertiary education for first generation Royal Navy seafarers leaving the Royal Hospital School after A-levels. The successful applicants in their first year are studying English Language & Journalism; Aerospace & Aviation Engineering and Real Estate.
Greenwich Hospital agreed in October 2015 to support the Poppy Factory beneficiaries with funding for training grants designed to enhance the employability of these beneficiaries.
Greenwich Hospital supports the MSSC
In November 2015 Greenwich Hospital agreed to support the Marine Society in their scheme to offer Tutor-supported Distance Learning Courses to Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Fleet Auxiliary personnel. Greenwich Hospital passionately believes that education brings lasting benefits and is delighted to help more Naval Service personnel to undertake the excellent courses provided by MSSC.
Mark Windsor, Director of Lifelong Learning had this to say:
‘The Marine Society is proud of its partnership with the Royal Navy and grateful for the support of Greenwich Hospital. It means our learners will benefit from a very high level of support and extremely competitive costs.’
Greenwich Hospital becomes a member of COBSEO Case Management System (CMS)
Greenwich Hospital is now able to offer training grants to individuals.
Funding for training through the CMS has widened Greenwich Hospital’s ability to support personnel in the Royal Navy and Royal Marines who now require training in order to support themselves in a civilian-based position.
To be eligible, applicants should discuss their needs with a SSAFA or RBL case worker who will then make an application through CMS.
