Commando Joe's

When It Comes To Building Character And Resilience In Schools, There Is Nobody Better Trained Than Commando Joe’s Team Of Highly Skilled Instructors.

Part-funded by the Department for Education, we employ military veterans from across the Armed Forces who have shown bravery and strength of character in some of the most demanding situations

We pick the best and we retrain them to go in to schools and pass their unique skill set on to the next generation.

Working alongside teachers in hundreds of schools across the UK, our instructors offer team building and mentoring in and out of the classroom.

It’s not about shouting orders and military manoeuvres. It’s about finding fun ways to help children discover strength of character, positivity under pressure, and resilience in the face of whatever life throws at them.

The instructors have undergone an intensive training course to make sure they are the best of the best when it comes to teaching ‘Character Education’ in schools. Everything we do – from practical outdoor sessions to classroom-based guided reading – revolves around the same goals of boosting resilience, courage and determination in pupils.

Working in the classroom, supporting teachers, our instructors have been proven to help boost grades and behaviour with their unique approach to education. By providing a friendly face – and a high five! – at the school gate, we help boost attendance. And by one-to-one mentoring we make it our mission to make sure pupils facing even the toughest challenges aren’t left behind.
