Training Modernisation


The Armed Forces need to modernise and improve the training they offer servicemen and women, according to a new study. Defence think-tank the Royal United Services Institute (Rusi) is calling for "personalised learning journeys", which it said would improve operational effectiveness and make through-career training fairer. Everyone gets Phase One and Phase Two training when they join the forces – equipping them with core military skills and those specific to their trade. Rusi's director of military sciences, Paul O'Neill, argued that a more flexible training culture and better use of technology could help deliver better results from training – both for individuals and for the effectiveness of the forces.
