TEA - Training Expense Allowance

#1
Anyone know why TEA has been stopped?

Was anyone forewarned of this or is it just a case of our employment terms being changed without our prior knowledge or, come to think of it, agreement?

As to why it has been stopped - no reason know, but would hazard a couple of guesses: that it was costing money, and that it represented an allowance available to the TA but not the regular Army (Bit like the TD - not that I'm bitter, oh no, not me Sir.....). After all, we can claim on a 1771 like anyone else? (But just you try it!)

Aye, it's "one army" now. We can claim the regular allowance, if we make 9 training events a month (which is essentially impossible, unless you course yourself up and do every weekend in a month....), which is considerably more I believe.

However, if this is like other regular allowances we're entitled too, I doubt we'll see it (ever tried claiming back you Mess subs from a course?)

If you pay a mess bill at your parent unit then receive a bill whilst on a course you should be refunded your parent unit subs for the same period, on production of a receipt. - happens at my place.
