Just been instructing on Phase 3 training, normally in my Bde this is done by a mix of regular and TA soldiers (mainly regs - TA getting the less trendy subjects such as JMH). This time the regular running the course, used only TA instructors and even replaced himself with the TA equivalent. Reports from the students says its the most professional instruction they have recieved during their time in the TA. Has anyone else seen this? This isn't an anti TA thread, the course was designed and organised by several regulars but handed over to TA when they arrived. I suspect the TA understand how to teach the TA better, they also will gain more benefit from teaching the soldiers well and correctly as they aren't going back to a different part of the army in a year or so. As a TA instructor I haven't felt so good about a training course or leading a group of soldiers like this for several years (when I was in the infantry). Seeing soldiers improve as the course progressed gave me a major ego boost........ Is the the TA coming back to life?
