Greetings chaps, A question to pose to thee about the doubiously-named SaBRE. I ask as I will be sitting down with the boss in the near future to inform him of my choice to take on the TA, and would like to be armed with some info about providing him/the company with any help(if at all) for whatever inconveniences may or may not arise from training, and hopefully deployment in the future. But I have seen that SaBRE has not endeared itself to many of the members here - as useful as a chocolate teapot seems to be the general concensus. So I ask the great minds here for their full opinion! Is the negativity from experience? From what I can gather on their website (I must confess I could only manage reading a few pages, alot of the contents was too much for my small brain), they offer all sorts of lovely little bits of help and advice to employers who have TA guys on their payroll. Helping to cover expenses like temps to replace the TA employee for durations of absence was of particular interest, as I'd like to be able to do my training in one hit - and do not have enough annual leave to do so. Is this not the case? Are they more trouble then they're worth? Is there any point at all to mentioning them to the guv? Positive or negative, I welcome any feedback on the matter.
