With the one Army concept being pushed now, we should all embrace it and drive it forward. Now there are TA units with excellent underused training facilities, more or less like those at B Branch in Bordon. It is a shame to see them underused, so would managers be prepared to send their VMs to these TA Wksp Coys to help fill the 3-2 books? The training could be delivered by the TA instructors, and for the doubters, they could watch the instruction. There are engines with FIPs for spill timing, cylinder heads to be whipped off and on, AESPs to hand and basic engineering principles and health and safety standards to be observed. Class Ones from within the units could even take the modules, accom would be basic you supply a chef and you use the kitchen (payd buy your own set-up)and generally it would be weekends, although a week option might be viable if unit provided staff. These units are dotted throughout the country and could speed up qualification of our tradesmen. If you vote no, could you be good enough to give a decent reason why you think these units cannot deliver training, thanks. If you do nothing but read this, please leave a vote. PM me if you have any genuine ideas or thoughts, i'm just after a straw poll here.
