2011 Summer Challenge

#1
I'll be going to selection in a couple of months, hopefully going on to attend the RLC TA Summer Challenge in Grantham, eventually going on to a local transport unit.

Is anyone doing the Summer Challenge this year - in Grantham or anywhere else?

Hey, glad to speak to someone else who's hoping to go, have you passed selection for it? I'm not able to do mine until June due to University, bit worried that it'll be a full course by then.

What does it involve? I have a leaflet on it but it doesn't explain much , was corner by the TA down my local shopping centre recently so I havn't had much time to look at it , I am interested in it though.

i have selection in May hopefully , i spoke to my recruiter about it after speaking with Swampy on here about it .. i got a phone call and have been issued a place as long as i pass selection ... it's basic training all in one two weeks solid from the 9th - 22nd july then a week break and resume again from the 30th - 12th Aug

Ah, that's great. Well I'm just getting my papers off for it now, I'll have to ring and ask how full the course is. Hopefully I'll see you there.

There are still quite a few places to be allocated from what I see from our Recruiting Team (I am part of). So yes there are spaces but it'll start filling up with students wanting to do their course over the Summer out of the way of University and such.

Are you part of recruiting ? Where are you based ?

I am only part of my units recruiting team and not the Summer Challenge DS.

Good to know that there's still space, those documents will be going off first thing on Monday, and I'll give them a ring just to ask about places left.

Guys, if you don't mind saying, where did you get your information on this TA Summer Challenge?

I passed selection recently and I'm due to start TSC(A) at weekends starting 29/30 April, with my Regional Training Centre. However its much more convenient for me to do it in one go than at weekends, so my unit is meant to be finding out about Summer Challenge for me.

They told me Summer Challenge was intended to be for TA Potential Officers - is that right?

No, Summer leader is for potential officers, well those already in the system, where are you based?
 
#16
Nope, Summer Leader is for TAPO's, Summer Challenge is for everybody. For those in NI - Shamrock Challenge will also be happening.

Based in the north west. Sounds like perhaps a bit of misunderstanding by the guy who told me about it. Summer Challenge sounds ideal for me, will need to chat to my unit about it next Tuesday and hopefully they can book me on it. Cheers for the replies guys.

MrBNW - The OP is referring to the RLC summer challenge being run by HQ RLC details at:

http://www.tachallenge.rlc-ta.info/

Most RTCs run consolidated TSC(A) courses, no doubt someone will be able to provide dates if you let us know where you are based.
Cheers, I think this would be ideal because I'm joining an RLC unit so perhaps be good to do TSC(A) & (B) with one. I asked about this at my selection day at Altcar (so the north west's RTC) but they didn't know anything about it. Quite happy to head down to Grantham instead though.

Fair enough I believe the RLC summer challenge is aimed at those joining a national RLC unit at Grantham (eg 160), having said that 156 (I assume) should be able to arrange you a place on it.
