How did you feel about resettlement/transition before the course?
"Very uncertain, nervous, unsure."
"I felt very unsure about what I was going to do and had no ideas regarding future employment."
"I was really concerned with how my skills transposed into a non-policing context, which is why I started to focus my mind on other police style jobs."
How are you feeling about it after taking the course?
"I feel much calmer and in control of my future. I also feel that I have built an extended support network from friends made during the course and knowing that companies like Mightify can assist with that transition. The psychology input has put into perspective the mixed emotions that I have been feeling."
"Due to the increased knowledge that I now have, I feel better equipped and empowered."
"It is really easy to say that somebody has ‘transferable skills’. The course has enabled me to identify and map out the specific transferrable skills that I do have and the opportunities that this may support."
"Empowered!! All my fears and concerns were catered for in these two days."
What did you learn from the course?

How did you find the course delivery? Pace, duration, presenters etc
