Welcome to
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.

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, mentoring, discipline and encouragement in and out of the classroom. Practical help for pupils and teachers when it is needed the most.

Our mission is simple – when it comes to education we believe there should be no child left behind. Sign up now and help every child in your school realise their potential.​
