It seems to be a trend that RNR units are having trouble utilising direct entry JOs when they first attend drill nights post AIB. I'm not sure that anyone has considered, past the stage of bringing in the direct entry route, how to bring them up to speed. At our unit, the new direct entry JO has been put in with the new entry ratings class. I feel that this could give the new entries mixed messages with regard to where the JOs fit into the grand scheme of things. Discuss.
