I am doing my Phase 1 in Feb and was wondering what leave if any you will get during both phase 1 and 2

Thanks in advance
My so. Is coming to the end of his Phase 1 training. Because of Covid there haven’t been any weekends home in Phase 1 but he did have Xmas break. Depending on what regiment you are joining will depend on how long a break you have between phase 1 and phase 2. But most are 2 weeks break. My some is joining royal engineers and he has 2 weeks. But bear in mind some regiments you only get that weekend off before starting phase 2.

Probably going to get some stick for this but Wondering if anyone could shed some light, I’ve seen a few places that people can get promoted to lance corporal straight after basic training. Is this true/ likely?

I am joining the guards and have my basic training booked for 22nd March

thanks in advance

A very limited number of technical trades can. Infantry can't. Expect to spend time at your unit after completing your training and to settle in/show your potential/get a place in the queue followed by perhaps 6 weeks on a Drill and Duties course (name may have changed) before you are eligible to promote. You then need to be selected.

To get promoted after phase 2 you need to join either as a tech, mp or maybe a few trades in the signals. This is not a given as you need to prove yourself and pass and be eligble to promote after completing ALDP.
