Silver award for commitment to the Armed Forces

Take Point Training has received an Armed Forces Covenant silver employer award in recognition of its support of Armed Forces personnel.

The scheme celebrates employers who actively demonstrate and pledge their support to the Armed Forces community.

Divided into three tiers - bronze, silver and gold - each represents a different pledge and asks progressively more of the organisations involved.

Take Point Training was first presented with a bronze award in 2022 for its supportive employer policies and conduct. Since then, the company has been working its way through the scheme’s accreditation process and has now been presented with a silver employer award.

Silver award winners must meet specific criteria, such as actively ensuring that their workforce is aware of their positive policies, demonstrating support to mobilisations of Reservists and providing at least five days’ additional leave for training.

Take Point Training’s founder, Shaun Pascoe, is a veteran himself and served in the RAF for 16 years.

He said: “We are immensely proud to have received the Silver Award and be recognised as an employer that goes above and beyond in supporting defence personnel. As a company built on the principles, knowledge, values and skills of the Armed Forces community, we are committed to honouring their legacy and embracing their spirit of dedication in everything we do.

"This award has always been a vital goal for us, and it is particularly humbling just after Armed Forces Week here in Falmouth. We remain committed to further strengthening our ties with the Armed Forces and aspire to achieve the Gold Award in the near future.”

An official presentation ceremony will be held in September 2023.
