SCQFP Head of Partnerships and Communications, Julie Cavanagh, recently took part in a podcast focusing on the range of education opportunities available for Ex-Forces and those Serving Personnel resident in Scotland.

In the podcast Julie talks about how the SCQF can help veterans and serving personnel to articulate their skills and experience to move into alternative employment or gain access to further and higher education learning pathways. She also refers to the ongoing project with Skills Development Scotland and the Ministry of Defence to develop an online skills profiling tool specifically for service leavers, to support them in understanding the skills they have gained in the military. 


Julie is joined on the podcast by host, Matt Pybus and:

· Claire Biggar - Inclusion & Wellbeing Consultant, Capability & Engagement Team, HR at Edinburgh Napier University

· Shaun Calvin - Support Officer for Veterans Scotland

· Gerri Matthews-Smith – Associate Research Professor and Lead for Military Research at Edinburgh Napier University
