LE Commissioning Board

Discussion in 'Royal Signals' started by Mickael, Aug 26, 2003.

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. The time is quickly approaching where the Warrant Officers of the Corps have to decide if they are going to put themselves through the LECB in January !

    I've heard some comments in the past along the lines of:-

    Should not need to jump through those hoops at this stage in career.

    Should know the WO already with the years of CRs etc.......

    It's decided before you get there !

    Do we need some form of selection process ? ?

    Is the LECB the way to do this ? ?

    Any Thoughts !!!!
  2. Like most Arms and Corps, there is a wide field to select from.

    CRs give some of the picture but far better to speak to a candidate and see what he is made of. It is simple as that - also fairer.

    Good luck if you are going for it ! :D
  3. I assume, like any selection process, there are 2 schools of thought:

    1. "Utterly brilliant at selecting the wheat from the chaff" (the opinion of those selected)

    2. "Wrong, wrong, wrong" (those not - usually accompanied with a) "My last report let me down", "I didn't get on with my boss" etc etc etc.

    I think it works quite well, the reaction of those not selected often gives something away. A filter, followed by a board, interviews etc seems the logical solution.

    ps. My last report let me down, I didn't get on with my boss.
