i attended an army recruiters course in january and learned that changes in the way we recruit in England are supposed to be implemented from April 2011. However nothing and nobody seems to be aware of any changes in my Battalion and we are still using the same old systems. Ive been told this is the case for all of the north of England. ALL units in Scotland, Wales and Southern England are already using the new systems. The Army Recruiting School are positive we are supposed to be steering our TA recruits to the new Army Selection and Development Centres. Utilising the one army doctrine all potential recruits regular and TA all go through the exact same systems up until they complete and pass ADSC where they then go onto their own corps and capbadge training as normal. ADSC begins with a full medical which will remove one headache for us. Staffing is by Regular Army PTI's and NCO's. On paper it seems a very good system and the Army Recruiters course is designed around it. So if your involved in the recruiting system for your unit what have you found? Are you using the new systems and more importantly are you aware you should be sending your recruits to ADSC's for assessment? Are you already sending your recruits to the ADSC's or still carrying on under the old systems?
