AGC(SPS) TA Commission

Discussion in 'AGC, RAPTC and SASC' started by redfibee, Apr 9, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Is it possible to get a TA Commission with the AGC(SPS)?

    Spoke to my own RAO, who tells me they no longer exist.

    Spoke to CVHQ at Worthy Down, and was told they were full.
  2. Fancy checking ARs for the rest of your life ey? :D
  3. The Regular AGC made a policy decision that they were not resourced to train SPS Officers to the standard to make them effective RAO's, and most TA posts were late entry, specialists.

    They cancelled the TA RAO course and removed the personal development route for potential Direct Entry or those who apply as soldiers. I had a PO who did AOSB only to find that they had cut the ground from beneath them.

    So, unless you are willing to wait for everyone ahead of you to die, leave, or retire and to move up the ranks to one of the few remaining TA RAO jobs, your prospects are slim.
  4. So are you saying that we have an Army full of less than effective RAO's? All this time we've been blaming the young clerks and JPA, when all the time the problem has sat at the top!
