I've had the nod that they are viewed as the best.. looks UP...
 
#2
So will they be sharing best practice?

Hahahahah! Mate, if its true well done! However I think each one will get told something like that, just to keep the small (and getting smaller) band of good people turning in.

Would be interesting to see if any RTCs have been told, "Your shoite, don't come in next week!"

quality of instruction maybe...quality of food and accomodation definitely not
Awww Crap - Just beat me too it.

Now if they spent the cash to upgrade or perhaps used one of the mothballed/abandoned barracks in the area!

Runour has it that the £'s needed to extend the kitchens have been found - with the extra food prep & storages area etc then the menu/quality can move away from the "fast food" variety to something fingers crossed a lot better
As I understand its then the showers and ablutions to be upgraded.........
During the first week of Summer Challenge, 4 Div RTC was the first RTC to be inspected by a newish organisation (I think the AGC Inspectorate) who have the remit to do all of the RTC's along with regular training establishments with a remit to establish best practice sharing amongst them
It involved a whole host of interviews with management, instructors & recruits plus reviewing all the processes, documentation etc etc

so the ITG assessments dont count any more? this a case of jobs for the boys?

I think one of the visiting Major's was particularly delighted to see a recruits water bottle winging its way in his general direction and the recruit having to explain what he was doing:)

Soz to question this but of the non 2 Div Bdes I've worked with, they all came last. The Scots with their summer challenge, 15 Bde with their taking CCRF stuff seriously, 42 Bde just accepting defeat on being wrong side of t'hill. 49/143 hmm, even 42 Bde does it better

So you've not inflicted your particular Black Hole of Morale on 4 Div RTC?

:D

gonna bite.... the Scots with their SC, which now all the Bdes are copying.......but who cares so long as the SUTs are trained to the correct standard ?, oh who provided the template for the other RTCs, esp RTWs? oh yeah 51 (Scottish) Bde IIRC!

Good point FF Box and who was the first RTC OTW to be allowed their PO's to get the "badge" from Sandhurst?
51 (Scottish)..no longer part of the team but still proud to have been.

RTCs vary - it's inevitable but in my experience they all offer a standard of training that is monitored by the Regional Bdes, Sandhurst, Training Group, etc.. If they were not performing, then it would soon become obvious (1 c results for example). There will be regional variations - but that's probably a good thing.

What I don't quite understand is that I thought RTCs were Bde assets - are we saying that 4 Div only has one RTC?

Malta Barracks is a Divisional RTC rather than a Brigade one cos it covers 145 Bde, 2 Bde & for recruits London District aswell
So its creation was a hybred & everybody wanted to play with the train set - even more lords & masters!!!
PS There is also 43 Bde RTC in Exeter within 4 Div

So, it's more a case of '4 DIV RTCs...some of the best?' then.

Where are the OTWs in 4 Div?

Not sure how 43 Bde handles TAPOs, but for the SE (inc London), 4 Div RTC does all Mod 1 training & then oversees/manages all TAPO's for 2 & 145 Bde through the process inc Westbury, but London District RTC actually does Mod 2 & 3 delivery for all of the SE
Confused?
