Eye In The Sky said:Sounds to me like something major is failing at places like RMC in types 1 and 2. If you don't understand, or have a 'discipline goal' identified in your training and training establishment, well...
Maybe there is too much mentorship and leadership being conducted by "senior OCdts" or candidates...bring the leadership 'off the hanger floor' could be part of the solution?
When I was recruiting over 10 years ago we would be accompanied by an RMC rep. And a cadet or two as well. It boggled my mind what the RMC rep was spewing. Talking about the College Pillars and that the “military” pillar was not that important as cadets would get that in their trades training and after college. He told us that they were trying to make the college more attractive to applicants by portraying as a normal university.
I could also get I to the varsity sports BS the college was recruiting for and the lowering of academic standards to get them in.
Not sure if it has changed since them but RMC recruiting and selection I believe has been taken out of CFRG I think.
They had priority issues back then. Sounds like it hasn’t changed.
