Submarine school help

Hi, I'm doing research for my selection interview on Thursday. I've applied for ET(WESM) and I am trying to find out where the submarine school is based. I've read on some threads on here that it is still in HMS Raleigh but just read an article on the RN website about trainee submariners passing from their 10 week dry phase conduct at the Clyde base. Does anyone know where I would be based for submarine school? I'm applying for the V boats if possible.

Thanks for any help.

The Submarine School is at Raleigh. The trainees completing their 10 weeks dry training in Faslane have completed their basic and trade training (which for most will have included time at the submarine school) and then moved onto qualifying as a submariner.

Brilliant, thanks. Am I right in thinking that after basic training phase 2 training is at HMS Collingwood then onto submarine school in HMS Raleigh and then to Faslane?

Depends if you get streamed to SWS, or TWS. There are 2 arms of the WESM branch. One deals with torpedoes and the other missiles.

If you're streamed TWS, you'll do phase 2 at Collingwood followed by some time at the Submarine School in Raleigh before starting your SMQ in Faslane.

If you're streamed SWS, you'll do phase 2 in Collingwood and then head to Faslane to do SMQ and then you'll do TTF to learn about the missile system and how to maintain it.

What does SWS and TWS mean? Does the Vboats have the missile training and the A boats have the torpedo? Can I choose which path? Thanks for the help.

Fer chrissakes don't go v boats. I did my last 12 years conscripted to them they are pish. Once you're in you can't get out.
Go for fleet boats first. If you don't like them you can then go to bombers.
Sws strategic weapons system ~(missiles)
Tws tactical weapons system (torpedoes ).
If you want real info, pm me.

WE SR's split into various streams so Fire Controllers, Sonar benders, REA's and OA's. There agiain I was an ME(L) so may have got some of the streams wrong!

I was talking to a PO CISSM the other day who was being cross threaded REA so a lot has changed since the CIS (RO for the oldies) branch became part of the WE world.

I was a Sonar Bender. EVERYTHING to do with Sonar was mine, from the water to the eyes - internal and external, equipment and displays. I had a (usually) baby Tiff and a PO Tiff and one or two lads. We (usually) only went to sea with 2 out of 3 SRs.

There was a computer Chief, a Gyro Chief, a weapons Chief and a Radio Chief who had their own fiefdoms.

And lots of sharp pencils and clear consciences ;)
