Lack of JNCOs supporting RTCs?

#1
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that there seems to be less JNCOs attending as DS at the RTCs?

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.

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.

I wonder if there are any capbadges in particular which are under-represented in the RTCs?
Once they all get back from OPs/FTRS/ADCs I will give them a proper bollocking, promise.

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...

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.

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.

Not if you are involved with 'recruiting'.

Nowadays the key skills are SAAI, PTI & SCBC (or equiv), the best way to avoid the MTD trap is to go for a 2 to 3 year posting at an RTC - it will definitley do your TA career a lot of good (as similar postings to ITC/ATR does for the regulars). 4 Div RTC (Malta Barracks, Aldershot) have a few vacancies left for LCpl/Cpl/Sjt of any capbadge with these skills
What are the benefits:
1) Experience of dealing with really large numbers of soldiers who are all keen to learn
2) Opportunity to become a better Instructor via TTT and inhouse coaching
3) Getting your career and skill courses done
4) Up to 117 MTDs pa (minimum of 50)
5) A lot of fun!
So if your are in the South and interested PM me

jobs for the boys :) With the premium on MTD's the Recruit Training Team has suddenly become a closed shop to those who were regular visiting instructors at 145 Bde. The requests to assist which were common in the past have suddenly dried up.
 
#18
No disrespect but I volunteered to help out at a RTC near me and I have not heard anything back. That was a few months ago when they had a personnel requirements list.

There is a permanent "request to assist" from the RTC especially from your unit - are you saying that this closed shop is actually within your unit?
 
#20
the door shut after the MTD scare by certain individual in my Coy may reopen again in new year!! The logic is we also have 3 people from our Coy assigned to the RTC, so the view is that their is no further requirement for additional visiting instructors.
