New Training Pipeline

#1
Hi, I've been a long time lurker here and have learnt a lot from the forums but the time has come where trawling the threads (and other sources) has not yielded a result. I recently passed my psychometric tests and sift interview and am now awaiting a date for the AIB. In the meantime my ALCO has suggested researching a few topics which will be worth knowing about for the interview. The one suggested area that has me stumped is the new training pipeline which I recall hearing is coming into play in the new year. Before I contact my ALCO to ask for further details, is anybody here able to outline the new pipeline or point me in the right direction?

This may be what he's referring to:

CHANGES TO ROYAL NAVY INITIAL OFFICER TRAINING

• A review of Initial Officer Training has been conducted by BRNC.
• With effect from 27 Apr 09 BRNC will adopt a 3 Term Entry to replace the current 6-entries per year.
• This revised scheme brings with it a number of benefits, including:

The provision of a standardised Phase 1 programme covering entry at BRNC to completion of common sea training for all YOs.
Better preparation for frontline service by enhancing Common Military Skills, Command Leadership and Management, sea-sense and Naval ethos.
Better co-ordination of a previously congested programme to allow greater focus on the key elements and themes for YO training.

1. The 3 Term Entry Scheme will comprise of:

a. A core 28-week Initial Officer Training programme based on 2 x 14-week terms for all Naval College and Direct Graduate Entries, including aircrew. On completion of this training, all officers will:

(1) Have received instruction in the Tactical Estimate and orders process.
(2) Be capable of acting as Officer of the Watch 2 at cruising stations.
(3) Be capable of acting as an Assistant Divisional Officer.
(4) Be capable of acting as 2nd Officer of the Day.

b. A 10-week combined Initial Sea Training/Common Fleet Time sea training package that will better condition officers to the rigours of life at sea and provide a baseline for later specialist sea training in Phase 2. This will be completed during Term 2.

c. A bespoke 7-week induction course for all Senior Upper Yardmen, Chaplains, Doctors, Dentists, Nurses, Environmental Health Officers and Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA).

2. The 3 Term Entry will formally begin on 27 Apr




Hope that helps
