Report by Adult Learning Institute - commissioned by Ingram - has reported. Amongst their comments If training establishment management is lacking as claimed by IAL, doubtless they will push for further civilianisation. If the 'ideal' instructor may not have the successful in combat skills, who will teach recruits to survive? Moving this process further down the line may well cause the drop out bulge to come later - when even more effort and money is wasted by losing makee-learnee soldiers. Education has shown us what happen when you relate results to low performance; qualifications are less well regarded. Is the Army going down the same route by doing what it can with what it gets rather than trying to improve what it can get out of youngsters with hard work and - just maybe - suffering. Claim is that 10% complain of bullying - why not let them go back where they came from and concentrate on the 90%? Before loads of people dump on an old man thinking he condones bullying - No, not at all but all training must be realistic. Soldiers fit for purpose, soldiers fit for role. Recent award of VC and other gallantry awards surely emphasis what is needed when the chips are down.
