It says on the army jobs website that some of the Royal Signal job trade's offer promotion after phase 2 training, my question is whats the chances of being promoted straight to a Lcpl after phase 2 (trade: Comms Sys Engineer)
pretty good if you are a good boy. You will still have to do a junior leadership course though (cant remember what they call it exactly as it is still a relatively recent change (last 18 months I think)) and I think you do that before you leave Phase 2.
Does the R Sigs still use Cypher Operators. I seem to remember anyone selected for training on a Cypher Ops course was promoted to L/Corporal or even full Corporal once they had completed the course. This was usually after having been selected and completed a B3 to B2 conversion Data Telegraphist course..
I know that the old Tele Mech T3 Telerpinter Mech Trade group was promoted to L/Corporal on completion and posting to first operational unit post Trade Training...
I can only comment on the CSE course but you have to get the nod from your troop cadre, the nod from your trade course and THEN you have to pass the PNCO course. If you get all three then you get the substansive LCpl.
Also on the PNCO course you are marked red, amber or green (fail, not quite up to par and pass), if you get red oyu obviously fail, if you get green you pass and if you get amber then you get the acting.
Hope this makes sense!
