Lack of JNCOs supporting RTCs?

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by Bravo_Bravo, Dec 16, 2009.

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. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that there seems to be less JNCOs attending as DS at the RTCs?
  2. Reasonable mix with my lot I would say. A preponderance of WO2s if anything.
  3. Thought you'd only just rejoined?
  4. So what better place to see what the balance of personnel on the RRTT is?
  5. I wouldnt mind putting in a few appearances at my local RTC as its only 15 odd miles away, my brigades RTC is 143 miles away, I asked about going out "on loan" but was met with the old wall of silence, never mind.
  6. I wonder if there are any capbadges in particular which are under-represented in the RTCs?
  7. Our ITW has no Cpls at all, which is a shame as its a good place to gain experience(?)in teaching skills and all that is involved with working with SUT.

    I do know that at least one of the COs in the Bde wants to post JNCOs in for 6 months to a year, however by the end of that time they are only just becoming used to the job, also with the need to be a SAAI is kinda limiting the potential instructors. Still its a start.
  8. Once they all get back from OPs/FTRS/ADCs I will give them a proper bollocking, promise.

  9. Well with good JNCO's at a premium are you going to send your best to the RTC with most of the good ones heading out on OP's for experience ?

    But yes too many WO2's in the worng jobs...
  10. At the RTC (our) there are a smattering of badges within the ITW specifically, The instructors are predominantly Inf with two Corps thrown in to raise the tone of the place, the HQ element (of the wing) has a mix.

    We need 3 more.....

    Very true Swamps and very understandable.
  11. :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:
  12. I'd be interested in getting involved with this, but don't know much about it. I'm not sure my unit would know much either, and would probably be a bit surprised I was interested.

    If you do get involved, is it expected that you do so at an RTC that supports your unit?

    Are any particular qualifications essential?

    I remember when I was doing Phase 1, there were a number of LCpls and Cpls that were there just to support/assist the recruits, escort them etc.
  13. surely MTD's are an issue with parent unit now days?
  14. msr

    msr LE

    Not if you are involved with 'recruiting'.

  15. Given your self-professed 17 yeare gap, not really.
