Career mismanagement?

Can a private soldier have their career mismanaged? I don't want to go into to details but I feel that my career has been mismanaged, though I've been told privates soldiers can't have their careers mismanaged.

Could some one give me the details of any of the JSPs that cover this, I don't have much access to JPA so knowing what to look for would save me a lot of time.

Cheers.

JSP 831. If you truly think you are being mismanaged, push it up the chain. If you get found to just be moaning cos you didn't get a cushy number you were trying to blag, It will come back and bite you in the shitter

Thanks, I have good reason to believe I have been mismanaged.

Had you been on a JNCO cadre in that time?
No I'd been told I'd get promoted/be eligible for promotion after completing a selection course I did for the job I'd be doing on tour.

But wires had been crossed somewhere and my boss had at the time had been given some bad info.

Though that's not really the issue, it's what's happened in the 4 years since.

Are you currently 'with' your Bn, or on attachment elsewhere?

What's your med status at present? Are you FE? some posters on here seem to know quite a bit about your situation, but you're being very guarded in your responses. 10 years is a bloody long time to do as a Tom. Have you had some form of major administrative action against you? After that amount of time, even if you were dog toffee as a youngster the ChOC should be willing to take some sort of risk giving you a tape. How far behind your peer group are you?

I've never even been AGAId, I can pass my fitness tests comfortably and all my SJARS since 2005 have had recommended for promotion now and all that good stuff.

I'm P3 but am deployable, and have been pretty much constantly since late 2007/early 2008 but as we no longer run G4/downgraded JNCO cadres I can't be promoted.

All the people I was in training with are now fairly senior full screws.

******* too right they can! I used to mismanage many of my Private soldiers when I was a Platoon Commander. I was a right ****!

**** 'em.

cnuts.
Yeah, you strike me as the kind of bloke to make your soldiers life a misery and then hide behind your rank.

As you say if you can't do (or havent done) a cadre then you can't be promoted. (this as far as I know is across the entire army not just the infantry).
Its hard to see (from that) how you have been mis managed even if you had been given bonk information saying otherwise, you still wouldnt have been promoted anyway.
Depending on your injury could you meet the fitness requirments of a cadre? The downgraded in the loggies can get upgraded enough (Temporarily of course) to attend.

Our g4/downgraded course only stopped late 2009/early 2010 so there was a period of about 2 years where they could've put me on one but I was told at the time the OC kept blocking it.

I've tried getting upgraded but have always ended up breaking myself and getting downgraded, being able to pass a normal PFT and CFT isn't good enough to pass our JNCO cadre. On the last one they ran 2 PFTs back to back, the first in 10 minutes as a warm up and then the second as the actual PFT. Then after the CFT they binned people (who had passed the CFT) who ran the PFT slower than somewhere around 0830 (allegedly).

Cant comment on the standard of your cadre, it sounds lot harder than ours.

What reason did your OC give for blocking it?
For the loggies Im sure it was well before 2009/2010 when they binned downgraded courses.

He wanted me to get upgraded and do a proper course. Which might have been ok if not for other people got downgraded and had been sent on a g4 course and promoted in under a year.
