The Corps’ vision for 2025 and beyond is bold:

‘A world-class, innovative and adaptable Corps, sustaining continuous activity at home and around the globe. All underpinned by a people-focussed ethos and the exploitation of data and cutting-edge technology.’

The RLC is a unique Corps in terms of size, diversity and experience. No-one can do what it does. But to achieve the Corps’ vision, the Corps’ methods, capabilities and required skills must change.

To achieve this, four objectives will address: People & Ethos, Exploiting Technology, External Integration and Communication and Influence. The RLC has a huge amount to offer the Nation. Please read the strategy, talk about it, be proud of it and share your ideas to help it to evolve.

To explain this further, The RLC’s Strategy on a page can be seen below.

The full strategy paper (less Annexes) can be found on Defence Connect using this link:
