The Training Specialisation offers a range of opportunities with an aim of maximising the potential of RAF personnel in order to ensure the Service delivers its operational capabilities. Training Officers are engaged in a wide variety of roles from providing specialist training advice & consultancy for individual & collective training, course design, governance & assurances through developing programmes that enhance human performance, to operationally vital employment in flying training development, parachute training for the UK’s Airborne Forces, Defence Survival Evade Resist Extract training and Force Development including adventurous training.
Given the variety of roles within the Training Specialisation, Training Officers have opportunities to lead, develop and manage training on RAF and MOD Units throughout the UK, on overseas bases, and on exercises and operations around the world. To provide a fresh challenge and enable you to develop your skills as a specialist, you will change jobs, known as posts or appointments, every 2-3 years. Within your first few years of service and subsequently, you may be detached from the United Kingdom for anything from a few days to a few months. You could be posted on an overseas tour or go on operations in your current role.
