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. I am interested to find out if TA soldiers get learning credits.
    I could just ask my unit, but thought I'd ask here first.

  3. Tried getting them on chance.
  4. What if you have already been demobed and are on end of tour leave?

    Then you are not mobilised...

    What do you want to study?

  6. Then you're covered under MSRs first sentences

    Edited to add: Beaten to it!
  7. I spoke to a new career skills representative today and he thought that you got some kind of learning credit through the TA

  9. a city and guilds plumbing course
  10. I just looked at the link you posted, After doing 2 tours in the last 3 years i should get something.
  11. Rose petals scattered for you to walk on? If you want all the benefits as well as the glory then go regular.
  12. Why should you? Why should doing '2 tours' have anything to do with it? You could have sat on Safwan Hill and t*ssed it off for 2 tours for all I know?

    Should the grotesque fat f*cking lumps in units up and down the country who never have and never will deploy be exempt from the opportunity? You have a forty odd hour working week to square away your education when you are not playing dress up on Tuesday nights, if your claiming you can get some or all of it paid for. If you are working, do what the rest of us had to do as a civilian, dig deep and suck it up at night school.

  14. Nope. msr - check e-mails please!
