[align=center]INTELLIGENCE ANALYSIS NVQ 3

This award was originally developed for Police Intelligence Analysts, but is still applicable for many members of the Intelligence Corps. Work is being done in the Directorate to try and widen the scope of this award, which at present is probably best attempted by Corporals and above. For more information on this award please contact:

Hi,

Sorry to hijack the tread a little, but I am currently awaiting selection for the Int Corps, and have been wondering about educational possibilities once I am in (assuming I pass).

Would people say its relatively easy to get loaded onto these sorts of courses once you are in?

Thanks.

Educational courses are not.. per say.. an Army responsibility to load you onto to.

There are various ways to gain educational qualification in the Army, some fully funded, some partially funded and some you pay for yourself.

It would take a while to explain the whole convuluted system but in essence.

Your Phase 1 / Phase 2 training will allow you to apply for accredited qualifications which you are entitled to including NVQ's.

As you progress in rank you attend military Command Leadership and Management courses which have civilian equivalents and you can gain the civilan equivalent qualification as well. These vary between rank.

This will also entitle you to membership into the various mangement institutions such as CMI, IOM, ILM etc etc.

In your spare time you can undertake any courses you see fit and (barring a few obstacles) recieve some or most of the course fees refunded when you pass using your Standard Learning Credits or Enhanced Learning Credits. You will recieve a brief on those when you are actually in training.

Some distance learning providers also give you a Ministry of Defence discount if you train with them for GCSE's etc.

Within the wider Army you can also apply for and attend short residential courses at various Universities to discuss Counter-Terrorism, Geo-Politics, European Integration and that sort of thing.

But........

most importantly........

For absolutely free courses which are accredited you can get yourself along to your nearest DELC/Learndirect and study for your ECDL, PRINCE2, CompTIA and other trade qualifications in your own time.

The DELC also offer free Rosetta Stone language training for almost every language you can think of.

Any more questions - PM me.

Hope this helps.




And yes you did hijack my thread you little redarrsse :wink:
Down and hold to my timings.

If you need it to carry out your duties (it helps if it's stated in your jobspec), then yes, it's free. Otherwise, cough up the £1000-£1500 like everyone esle.

Pop down your local DELC and have a look if you don't believe it! It's the foundation course but at least it covers all the basics.

[hijack mode on ]I don't suppose anyone knows if you can get ITIL courses done for free through the mob? [/hijack mode off]
 
#11
You can do the ITIL as well.

The Prince2 you only need to pay for your exam (about £75) last time I checked. My missus works in the DELC so I found all this by hanging around.
 
#12
There is a Prince2 thread banging about. In RHQ perhaps?

Any idea of the cost of this NVQ Int. course? Also, where do you sit in the cell hierarchy with this qualification?

I haven't phrased that very well, I hope you know what I mean.
 
#13
I am digging into the NVQ now and will have a definite answer next week.

I think for it to become a reality some OPMI Managers may have to step and become assessors for us Jnr Ranks.

In the meantime completion of CLM entitles you to membership of the

Institute of the Leadership and Management with a £35 discount. Email if anyone wants it.
Chartered Management Institute but most people know that.

Completion of Trade Class 1/2/3 gives different membership levels of the

Security Institute

Remember resettlement starts the day you join :wink:

Again PM for details or emails

Ref the above-CMI qualification changes/has changed to reflect the new CLM structure. Details will be given to you on your CLM part 3 (AEC) element when you do it. The Arms and services Part 1 and WBL (Part 2) have been mapped for accreditation making it easier to get the higher qualifications (though SLC can't be used) and before anyone asks I don't know if the changes are retrospective. If you have specific questions PM me as I have to call CMI anyway next week and I'll ask for you.

edit for mongtype and to say Dontdreamit pse check PM

I tend to agree with Up in Arms. Trade qualifications and experience are all picked up 'on the job', and if you can get a bit of paper to prove it all well and good. A degree is however becoming an unwritten requirement even for some clerical jobs: the quantity of graduates in the job market has to an extent devalued degrees. I would recommend six plus years of effort to get an OU degree (or similar), and then top up with any professional qualifications.

The other point is that many organisations/institutes which provide training and qualifications are also businesses - they sell training. The main use they have in reality is for networking, and that can be done fairly effectively through ICAREC and doesn't cost a penny.

There are lots of ways of getting qualifications to help with eventually employment outside the Army/Corps. A degree is useful and easily recognisable. Others qualifications maybe less so. Invest your dosh wisely.

I would echo the advice to choose wisely - and this should extend to your choice of degree. The dirty little secret that so many gloss over is that while the Govt mouths off about 50% getting degrees, as opposed to around 5% way back when I got one, most of the extra 45% are useless. By that I mean employers do not consider them deserving of extra pay. So the job that used to be taken by an 18 year old with A-levels is taken by a 22 year old with a whopping student loan - for the same equivalent salary. Hell, some degrees have "avoid at all costs !" stamped on them - usually arts related.

But get a traditional degree from a traditional uni and employers will smile on you just like they always used to do. Choose carefully. Mind you, I have no idea about trade skill related quals, mine are all in engineering for my civvy job.

Sad but true these days having a trade is financially much better (certainly early on). Plumbers and sparks in particular can almost name their price. I know that the building industry is in dip at the moment but when a pipe bursts or all the power goes off at home, how much are you prepared to pay to get it fixed?

I was sure I had read your obituary in the last Rose + Laurel

Have you been on ultra-LONG LOOK??

PS: 85% of all jobs are unadvertised, your network may stand you in better stead than your degree.

It's a major problem that someone can come out of 20 odd years service (and experience) with the Corps but not be eligible for one of the agencies (unless they have a strong specialist trade) because they don't have a degree; which is now a pre-requisite at most grades.......
Up in arms: whilst I have every respect for those who have left the Corps, to work with one of the Agencies, it is a sad fact that these days, that anyone leaving after 22 with a young family and a mortgage, is going to be driven to the private sector, by pure economics.

The pay scales of some of those working in Government these days are a disgrace. IMHO you can only stretch loyalty so far.
