Progressive Training Syllabus


#21

If you’re going to have badges for road marching where are the ones for sports? After all road marching is a bit niche, whereas sports are fully embedded in the Corps’ activities. We have a Wing team for Nijmegen but it is one squadron that runs it and is the main source of participants as the training is quite intensive and designed around them. I feel if the chap who does it and is really keen, leaves, this will end. He moved squadron and the impetus moved with him and his previous squadron had a couple of cadets do it for a couple of years and then it stopped. I’ve advertised it every year and not one cadet has shown the slightest interest and neither have the staff.
I and many thousands of others have represented at every level and some in several sports and never had visible day to day recognition.


#22

Aye, but those 100 cadets didn’t get any recognition of doing RAFWARMA in terms of uniform. The only walk recognised is Nijmegen, which while a very good walk is possibly not the most open or beneficial walk for cadets to take part in.


#23

I believe they get a Wing Blue for it Andrew I would leave it at that.


#24

If anyone fancies a laugh, check out the latest “2FTS Aviation Update” on the announcements page of Sharepoint. Looks like a contestant from The Apprentice was given the task of writing it :joy:


#25

Where is it? All I can see is the ACTO update.

#27

All you need to know is that it uses the words “synergy” and “synthetic training centres”


#28

Ahh sorry. I thought you meant a new one published today. Yeah, this is interestingly written


#29

I bet silly management language bingo must be done in 2FTS meetings.


#30

Where is the actual syllabus for all this (apart from flying) - is there one overarching document?

Yet to be told if this applies to CCF(RAF) but I am assuming so. It would be good to be able to write, you know, a training programme…


#31

Hmmm, format (.pub) not able to open on a Mac… & “blocked” format on iMac.

They are both up to date too.


#32

I have a mac as well so used https://online2pdf.com/convert-publisher-to-pdf to convert it to pdf


#33

Many thanks! I’ve also messaged 2FTS asking them to change the format.


#34

Delicious irony that they upload something which very few people can read. More incompetence from 2FTS Towers.


#35

I have found a ‘cadets activities ages’ poster that has been released by LASER. Although there are a few activities missing it looks quite useful. It’s available on SharePoint here: https://sharepoint.bader.mod.uk/LASERegion/EssexWing/Lists/Announcements/Attachments/552/Cadet%20Activities%20Ages%20-%20FINAL.pdf

I’ll also put it on ACC Drive. :slight_smile:

#37

So are we officially adopting 13 as the start age for DofE??


#38

Also, was this designed by LASER/HQAC? Why are the flying and gliding topics not the TOP in each column, why are BTECs now more important.


#39

I think D of E is from Year 9 now, so 13+ depending on when their Birthday is


#40

I believe that from one very recent (Wg?) Officers’ Conference, the plans for the shooting badges were slaughtered…
