Phase 1 Trg has gone from a simple and effective basic introduction into being a soldier in order to provide a platform for long term training and improvement, to a bad attempt at an all embracing one-hit solution to the Regular Army's naive attempt to create mobilisable TA soldiers quick, and on the cheap. Result? - it's taking eons to get through, the training quality hasn't kept up the pace, and soldiers are losing the plot whilst "manning" (very high on the overall agenda at the moment) is going backwards....there's another review of Phase 1 going on at the moment - any comments out there in ARRSE land that can be fed in????? i.e - experiences of the new system (good or bad) - experience of the old system (good or bad) - what could be done to improve it? - has anyone gone through it recently and was it THAT bad? help!.
