TA Officer Specialists - Doing a stint with the regulars

#1
This doesn't affect me directly (at least, not yet), but has been hinted at in several places, so I ask the question for interest.

A specialist officer (say, a linguist) commissioned via the TA, has apparently the possibility to do a "short contract" (three years) on a full-time basis. Sorry cannot quote the official source, it was mentioned in a contact with my prospective unit.

How does that work then? And what happens if she/he likes it and wants to stay in afterwards? It all sounds like a bit of a shortcut round Sandhurst to me - anyone know more? Soroban, perhaps?

as I say, this is just for interest, so feel free to ignore.
