What education and skills do I need to have to apply?

We ask that at a minimum, you’ve gained at least ten credits at level one in both English and Maths. However some careers will require additional qualifications. We’re happy to give you the specific requirements for your chosen career – just call us on 0800 1FORCE. In addition, you will also need to be a competent English speaker.

Entry into the Defence Force is quite competitive and so you should try to get as high marks at school as you can.
