As much as one cannot read too much into the TA Continuous Attitude Survey (self selecting sample etc), it was striking to see such a chasm between the views of the junior ranks and everybody else in this year's results (available on ArmyNet). A large proportion of JRs want more training, think existing training (particularly drill nights) is aimless, think the TA could make more of their experience, and want to commit more of their time to the TA JRs are the TA demographic that have really stepped up to the plate on HERRICK, undoubtedly punching above their weight relative to their seniors in many cases. Often it is the JRs in a unit that have the most recent and relevant operational experience. It is clear that at Sgt and above people are much happier with training delivered (aside from MATTs....). But what can be done to improve training for the JRs, harnessing their drive to contribute more?
