Some things really do need to be delivered by Regulars - OPTAG don't have a TA component, for example. But should basic functions be taught by TA or by Regulars? I'm a strong advocate of the STABs training themselves whenever possible. Insisting that, say, harbour drills are taught by Regulars will very rapidly lead to anyone over the rank of Private wondering why they bothered with career courses. If that continues, you'll end up with a unit that very rapidly sees an "us and them" divide between Regulars and Reservists. I've heard of one very experienced SNCO being told that he can't deliver training based on the Forecast of Events because the (Regular) training team - PSIs, presumably - "will deliver that". On asking what he should do with his platoon for the four drill nights prior to that weekend, he was told "Battle Prep"... I've heard a fair bit more, but thats enough to be getting on with for now.
