The WSOs running units is not an option as they could be needed somewhere and as for double hatting you’d need to be pretty much someone with no job or life to do it any justice.
Why is one of the RCs not given the job to actually look at why people
1 don’t go into uniform
2 don’t people commission
3 did people join as staff
Do this by an anonymous survey like survey monkey sent to all addresses, to be forwarded to those without ATC emails.
It could be initially targeted at those actually doing it and ask direct questions along the lines of “given the way the ATC is structured do you feel you pressured to Commission” with remarks for yes or no responses.
I would say more people (ignoring direct ex-cadet commissions) do it due to the “arm twisting” of constant suggestion, to satisfy local need, than a real and undiluted want to do it.
