Contact the Soldier On Education team and we can get you started on IBM SkillsBuild, giving you free access to a wide range of digital courses covering topics as diverse as cybersecurity, communications, to professional development and health and wellbeing courses.

Matt, Soldier On Pathways Program participant and IBM Skillsbuild user, encourages others to contact Soldier On and access the digital platform:

“The local Soldier On Pathways Officer, has helped tremendously – helping me to update my resume, as well as reaching out to a potential employer.

“I would definitely recommend other veterans and their families to contact Soldier On and use Skillsbuild via Soldier On as it doesn’t just provide you with basic information and courses. The Skillsbuild platform has the resources on there to both learn from scratch or upskill even further into a career path of your choice.”
