I have seen documentation from SNCOs which leaves a lot to be desired and if this is to make it into the public domain, such as parents, it doesn't give a good impression and as I say communicating with high achieving cadets, it does you no favours.
I differ on the point about being teachers, we are expected to teach subjects and about things, that require a professional approach to the way these are done and in this are things like spelling and comprehension. If we are teaching a subject, part of our preparation should be understanding the subject matter and if our reading skills are not up to scratch, what chance do the cadets stand.
I've seen comments that we aren't social workers either, but we are expected to deal with welfare and CP matters, as part of safeguarding.
We are jacks of all trades and masters of none.
