Besides branch-specific qualifications earned during trainng there is the oppeortunity to undertake additional external educational qualifications. The Standard Learning Credit scheme was recently extended to include the Reserves: http://www.nff.org.uk/reserves/92-r...-credits-scheme-extended-to-reserve-personnel

The RAF website offers probably the best detail with regard available qualifications: http://www.raf.mod.uk/community/news/archive/standard-learning-credits-05122013

Thanks N_S. I had presumed the link referred to the branch-specific qualifications as opposed to courses available through the SLC scheme. Do you know if there is any page which itemises branch-specific qualifications?

I'll make enquiries tomorrow. CIS used to be the same as the regular service CIS, but I'm guessing that's changed. The other branches that equate to regular service equivalent branches should be similar, but again I'll ask the experts.

The officer route (I don't know about the rating leadership courses) is also now leading to Chartered Management Institute accreditation that maps to rank progression. Becoming a SLt is now sufficient to get you in as a "Member" on the fast track membership system.

Thanks N_S.

CMDKeen, I have read conflicting information re: entry as an officer. The RN website suggests all RNR enter as ratings however a number of case studies refer to officer entry and the associated training pipeline. Can the RNR be entered as an officer?

Lets also smash the buzz that is going round at the moment that if you go for RNR Officer and fail the AIB you cannot then join as a rating. Not true!!!! There's nothing wrong with joining as a JR, as if you've got it we'll find it in you...
 
The Direct Entry of Officers into the RNR has been raised, dropped, resurrected, interred, thought about, abolished, started and stopped more times than necessary. If such a scheme exists, I suggest you take advantage of it whilst it is advertising.
