Hi all, I'm down to do a TA distributed search course next year, as am consequently talking to my unit about the possibility of mobilisation - it's usually expected to do a tour shortly after completing the course (assuming you pass) as it's heavily geared towards current ops. My unit is keen, and so am I - on the condition that it will fit in with my work. I've just started a PhD, which in practice is like to a normal job, but significantly different when it comes to matters of mobilisation - instead of a salary, I'm paid a stipend by a research council via my university, blah blah blah... Neither SaBRE nor the research council's published guidelines cover if/how mobilising might work (the latter talks about abeyances for family/compassionate reasons, internships, etc. but nothing like this). I'm getting in touch with SaBRE, the research council and my supervisor today to find out more, but I thought I'd ask on here as well in case anyone has any advice/experience..? Cheers!
