Less moaning please! Its better than before isn't it?
I had an email this week with details of 33 civilian courses I can apply to attend in order to strengthen our capability. They include everything from two week short courses right up to MSc's and MA's. All course fees paid, MTD's for attendance paid, MTD's for home study paid, ADC contracts if necessary, all travel and hotel accommodation paid.
The fees for some of the courses are over £10,000, and some of them are overseas! Funding is available for people to attend 215 of these courses.
This is good stuff!
Edited to add (to avoid any more PM's) - this is only for AMS TA, but I'm sure other capbadges will be doing similar. Contact your CoC/PSI/TM.
Oh yes, AMS, the Army "gets" that AMS are specialists... I'm a specialist but get no equivalent civvy training as I'm expected to stay current through my civvy employment, not sure what would happen if I had a career change, I suppose I'd be binned.
