We all knew change was likely in this increasingly stretched age, and for my UOTC it has now come. Firstly is we are no longer affiliated to a university. We are at a minimum loosing the "U" in the name and could be going much further. The capbadge and all uni referances will also go. Our first year intake is increasing by 50% and they will be paid in a series of lump sums as opposed to a daily rate. First years will no longer be attested and will instead be under a system more similar to "look at life courses" Second years must have an intention to go regular/TA officer and as such will have to have begun the process of AOSB. Control will no longer be in brigade and instead will rest in Sandhurst, and in all likelihood (has not been finalised) we will be badged as such. All (TA)officers under training will now join their local OTC to undergo training. I also know of 2 OTC's that has been amalgamated. Anyone else experiencing similar changes?
