Role of the SSI - Good, Bad and ugly

Do you mean Staff Sergeant Instructor or School Staff Instructor?
In the CCF its basically the fellow who looks after the unit full time; he provides the role of Quartermaster, camp organiser and general boss-man.

At least that's what he did when I was CCF.

edit to add: our was a retired RA RSM and all round top bloke.
The role of the SSI changes from school to school. The role is specified by the head and contingent commander. Bit like an SPSI/QPSI/PASO all rolled into one for a mini unit.
I addititon to a sort of PSI/QM role for the cadets, I've known them do the following (across several schools and individuals):

Be reponsible for the school's transport (minibus) fleet (including making sure all the drivers are qual'd a big job in itself),

Coach driver,

Supervision of schoolchildren during break,

Running non-cadet expeds, D of E, etc

Running games,

Pool Lifeguard,

It can be quite a varied job as, as I said above, they are a school employee not a military or cadet one.
mine didn't have a tail.
