went to ripon for tafs 1a last night but when we got there we found that we were told at the guard house that they only had cadets booked in this weekend and not TA, we were even told that RTC had not booked any accomadation and last weeks had been cancelled, anyone heard owt.

Sheffielder I suggest you speak to your PSI, what did you do for the weekend ? Camp out at Catterick or go home ......bearing in mind you signed in for the weekend :D

Whatever you want to call them Bde Spec Trg Team or Regional Trg Centers whatever they are making a proper cake and arrse of the professional training they are meant to be giving to TA blokes the team in Edinburgh are just as bad ?

Please ensure you brief your PSI, PSAO and OC and if the CO asks how you are then let him have both barrels as well.

Dont be too hasty in your remarks some of my recruits went to edinburgh as the admin instr instructed and the TAFS 2 was being held in Barry Buddon but the cut and paste operator at the sharp end had F**cked Up so make sure you check the instr !

Well, it's a moot point. If retention starts the day a soldier walks in to join, we must make sure that we create the right environment for them to train and serve. Duff AO's won't assist.

dont remember a tafs 2 at barry buddon but there was one run in kirkaldy
but when the recruits got there it was cancelled, joining instructions said edinburgh but the oc rtc has e mailed all units to let them know of the changes( still awaiting the email).

doese a unit rep not take you through to your taffs or do you have to make your own way there?. as this is only your 2nd weekend its a bit jack to leave you to your own devices. be intrested how other units do this

our joining orders specified deverell barracks ripon,we recieved no change of venue. as for a unit rep take us through to tafs well no we had to make our own way,organise own transport.as for our 2nd weekend ive have been attested since june and that would have been my 4th weekend.
