Established in 2009 Commando Joe’s are the leading provider of character and resilience training in the UK. Developing well rounded resilient young people is integral to the provision we offer schools. We currently employ 100 veterans including wounded and sick as instructors/mentors using service core values such as leadership, self-discipline, resilience and teamwork to improve engagement, behaviour and educational attainment outcomes for young people. In recognition of our work we have been awarded the Highly commended Character award from the DfE, the silver award for the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC).
