First I have heard of it. I know the new Mod 2 has so much in it that it will take until then to teach but I think some flex is allowed. Frankly if anyone told me that the instructors had to teach until 5pm I would take it most seriously. What is the source?
Most TA Sundays I don't finish until 1800 anyway. I should add i am no longer an RTC instructor, but I know a number. My only concern is travel, many instructors travel some distance to the RTC, in my case a 1700 finish would have meant getting back to TAC at around 1830-1900 home by 2000!
I'm with Mr T on this. 8hrs min, the kids get up at daft oclock. work till 14-15.00 then travel back to the TACs. I took one lad from Ripon to Scarborough at 17.00 because his Unit had forgotten about him!
BB no disrespect as a visiting instructor ram it ....Now we start instructing at 7.15, now breakfast has been binned, The instructors in most demand are usually saa, who are "pooled" and are expected to teach to each intake which results in very few breaks.
That said are we expected to teach addional stuff ie more rifle lessons compared to the current programme, or is it an admin thing. Just think how long it would overrun it the interviews were running behind time so every one left at 6 instead!!
Christ, missing breakfast is a crime. I thought all RTCs were adhering to CMSR. 15 Bde SUTs get breakfast, why cant yours! If you need help pm me and I'll give you the phone number of someone who can help!
