MLA College Pledges Support for the British Armed Forces Community

MLA College Pledges Support for the British Armed Forces Community.

Officials from HMS Raleigh joined senior members of MLA College at a signing of the Armed Forces Covenant today. 

Captain Jane Roe, Commanding Officer, and WO1 Glynn Fellows, Base Warrant Officer, joined Professor Basak Akdemir, Chief Executive, and staff at MLA College at their Plymouth office. 

By signing the covenant, MLA College pledges to support the British Armed Forces Community and the principles of the Covenant. 

Captain Jane Roe ADC Royal Navy said: “It was a great pleasure to be invited to join senior members of MLA College for the signing of the Armed Forces Covenant today. It was also a real privilege and honour to say thank you for their pledge and commitment to those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces. I look forward to continuing our close relationship”.  

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, should be treated fairly and should not face disadvantages when seeking to access public or private goods and services in the UK. 

Professor Basak Akdemir, Chief Executive from MLA College, said: “MLA College is a Higher Education provider that has for many years specialised in the marine and maritime sector. Being based in Plymouth, home to the largest naval base in Western Europe as well as the British Army and Royal Marines, with a vast military history, and growing community that includes Veterans and families, it only feels right to be signing this covenant today. 

“We are thankful to Captain Roe and Warrant Officer Fellows for joining us on this momentous occasion.”
