Hi, I want to join the TA as a Communication Systems Engineer. The prerequisites are GCSEs grade C in English language, maths, science/ICT. I only achieved GCSEs grade E in science dual award and maths at school 10 years ago, however I do have a BTEC Award (equivalent to an a-level) in ICT and seven years experience in ICT Systems Support and Networking. I'm 26 and supporting both my wife and 5 month old child so going back to college or spending two or three years studying is not really an option. I've emailed an army carriers adviser mentioning all the above and all they've said is "you need the correct qualifications". I don't believe he's fully understood my situation of being a working adult with a family with an ICT qualification higher then GCSE level and not some kid who has just left school with low grades. Can anyone currently in a similar tech based role or someone else who assesses new recruits job roles please advise. Many Thanks.
