Should someone who wanted to develop themselves through attachements and courses be allowed to attend voluntarily (without pay) as a way of getting over the man hour restrictions? I want to do an attachement to our parent unit to get some experience. The parent unit says "fine, come along" but my unit says no, to the allocatrion of hours, and no to going unpaid. They contend I won't be insured so it is not possible. Also do you think people from other units should be allowed to attend other units training if relevant? Perhaps a brigade training programme could be published that was open to all. The training, in terms of hours, for TA guys is deterioating by the month.
