Not clear about the pay for new YO's upon entry to Dartmouth. Do they start on reduced pay until later on in training?What do you enter on if you are Direct Graduate Entry?The website is still under construction so haven't been able to find out.

Thanks

Hmm, noticed your queries on this and other subjects; are you sure you're joining BRNC in January? It seems you've either not done much preparation or your Selection process hasn't supported you satisfactorily.

I have no idea either. There was never any literature offered during any stage of the selection process, and I never thought to ask about pay upon entry.

Rates of Pay are on the Royal Navy website & hard copies are usually given to every RN/RM applicant, unless they have gone out of print - often you will get asked the question "How much will you be paid" at interview.




Edited to add linky to revised rates of pay
 

New-start

Midshipman
That document is out of date now. As there is no seniority for age. It's all rated on academics.

Sub Lieutenant
Masters or equivalent - 3.5 years seniority £28,697.76
Graduate - 3 years seniority £28,697.76
Foundation degree or equivalent - 2 years seniority - £27,980.88

Midshipman - £14,348.88 (until passing out of BRNC when pay becomes £22,680)
HNC or equivalent - 1 year seniority
GCSE's, GNVQ & A Levels - Nil

I hope that this sheds some light.

The RN website is obviously being maintained at the moment as the search function defaults to another "live search" which is not up & running yet.

Thanks for posting that New-Start, the MoD network will not permit that .pdf download, so unable to see what's posted-how odd! The hard copy I have of "Rates of Pay from 1 April 2007" reads the same as your figures. (Graduate Entry Annual Basic Pay from £27,260.04 to £28,697.76).

Ok, i got told different...

I have 3 Alevels and am 19 years old (20 in March) and am applying for FAA Pilot.

So i will be joining as a mid-shipman on a wage of £14,000.00 a year?

Not that money bother me too much, but i was definitley under the impression i would be earning more than that! Considering im earning more than £4K more than that at the moment its quite a big pay cut for noone to bother telling me about!!

Or i am mistaken?

Non-Graduate Annual Basic Pay is £14,348.88
On passing out of BRNC, increasing to £22,680.

The information is freely available from your AFCO, I'm sure if you asked, they would be delighted to assist- if you don't ask, it would be assumed you already knew.

Flying pay ranges from £4,728 on qualifying to a maximum of £15,009.

When i asked in March and again in the summer i was told (can't remember exact figures) because of my age i would probably be getting around £16/17K! Obviously something has changed, i understand it doesnt go on age anymore.

However, i would have liked someone to have told me, why would i expect my rate of pay to change, its not like i look at the rate of pay every week. Surely its my AFCOs responsibility to tell me?

Whatever, its done now. Nothing is going to change now is it. Im just anoyed as now my outgoings are going to be more than my income so i think im going to have a problem.

Great more stuff going on in my head. As if i havn't got enough to worry about with AIB on Monday.

If this is true then I doubt the RN will let you join up. There was a chap on RR a few months back that was in a similar situation (couldn't afford house...etc) and was told he could not join. It might be worth checking before you bother with the AIB...etc.

Besides, once training is over you will be earning more, and doing a much more exciting and fulfilling job than Joe-civilian.
