F&C soldier ilr coach

Supporting Foreign & Commonwealth (F&C) soldiers to Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) status

Ex-F&C soldier, Lieutenant Colonel (Retd) Kenneth Bannister, served as a Trooper and Lance Corporal with the 9th/12th Royal Lancers (now Royal Lancers) before passing officer selection and gaining a commission at Sandhurst. Returning to the Regiment as a Troop Leader, he enjoyed a long and varied career, including in HR as SO1 RAC Manning and culminating as an instructor at the Joint Services Command and Staff College.


Upon leaving the Army in late-2019, he normalised his UK immigration status by transitioning from his Section 8(4) Immigration Act 1971 visa (issued to all F&C soldiers) to Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), thereby allowing him to settle, live and work in the UK. Today, he is the Director and Head Coach at Continual Edge Limited.

Befitting the company’s Armed Forces Covenant pledge and Military-Grade Coaching® ethos, Continual Edge has partnered with HQ RAC to offer pro bono coaching to any RAC F&C soldier seeking to gain ILR and settle in the UK at the conclusion of their service. As such, the company will work with the client to define their post-service UK immigration goals, agree a bespoke immigration transition plan, execute the plan against agreed timelines - all with ongoing support, thereby setting up the client for success upon leaving the Army.

This initiative offers RAC Foreign & Commonwealth (F&C) soldiers free coaching in their pursuit of Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) should they wish to settle and work in the UK following their military service. As the F&C Soldier ILR Coach, Lieutenant Colonel (Retd) Bannister has first-hand experience of the immigration path ahead having been through the ILR process himself. Working in partnership, the coach will ensure that the soldier (i.e. the client):

    • Understands the ILR path ahead.
    • Defines a personal immigration goal.
    • Develops a plan (early).
    • Executes the plan at the appropriate time.

in order to set up the client for success upon leaving the Army.

In line with Continual Edge Limited policy, all information shared during coaching sessions is strictly confidential. See https://www.continual-edge.com/data-protection for details.

To start this free coaching, email pursue@continual-edge.com and include the following information:

    • Email heading: RAC ILR Coaching Request - <YOUR NAME>.
    • Email main body: Briefly explain what you want. Be bold; this is your life we’re talking about here.
    • Sign off with your preferred name and contact details.
What "With You With Me" does?

WYWM assist veterans to get tech jobs without having to invest years and money into training. We help tech roles become accessible by harnessing Potential not experience.

How does a veteran apply?

  1. It is as simple as clicking this link and going through the logging on process. 
  2. Complete the aptitude and psychometric testing (approximately 2hrs).  Results and tech pathway recommendations will be emailed to you within 72hrs.
  3. Start your self learning training. If you have any questions about what pathway is best for you, a call with one of our success representatives can be booked. A user friendly syllabus is presented and time commitment outlined. Access to bootcamps with our top coaches (also veterans) is also available. 
  4. Performance dependent, the candidates receive a certificate from WYWM denoting their standard and tech pathway. WYWM will also support and pay for certifications offered outside of our organization.  

WYWM does hire individuals directly to either work for us internally, or as a "squad member"/consultant to be posted on a contract job with one of our large partners.

How does WYWM financial profit from this program?

WYWM does not profit from this program. Profits from our commercial partners and clients allow WYWM to deliver services for veterans and their spouses. WYWM genuinely wants to answer the call of the underemployment of veterans in a scalable fashion.
