Hi, first post on here - be gentle! I suppose the topic title sums up my idea but to elaborate a little; I am a still serving RAF Sgt with nearly 20 years experience. I have been toying with the idea for a few years now of "going back" to put a bit back into the SCC. As an ex-cadet in the late 80's/ early 90's it gave me a great grounding in military discipline/ skills etc that I was able to use when I joined the RAF. I have always been one of those people who has chosen to coach and mentor people and I have just finished a 3 year tour as an instructor at my trade school. This means I am already CRB cleared and have experience of working with young people (Phase 2 trainees are straight out of basic training). I am shortly to move onto a new posting and feel that I possibly have the spare capacity to volunteer as an adult instructor at the local SCC unit. I have not been in touch with them yet as I need to get to grips with my new posting and to find out if I am definitely able to commit (if they even require my services in the first place of course). As part of my "homework" I was wondering if the following questions could be answered: 1. As a currently serving member of HM Forces am I obliged to inform my chain of command if I successfully volunteer at the SCC? This might sound like a bizarre question but I am NOT planning on doing this for "brownie points" in order to get promoted. I am also not a martyr - I just have my own reasons for wanting to do this and it doesn't involve the RAF. 2. If successfully taken on as an adult instructor and after completing the obligatory probation and necessary courses, would it be possible to become a uniformed member of staff while currently serving in a different branch of HM Forces? (I hope I have explained that well enough!) I don't think I would want to be a uniformed RAF Sgt in my spare time as well to be totally honest! I may have more questions over the coming weeks/ months, I hope someone can help. Thanks for reading.
