Resources

Funding is available for Adventurous Training activities deemed a valuable addition to formal military training, helping support the values and standards of military personnel.

The authoritative source for direction and guidance for Joint Service Adventurous Training (JSAT) activities is JSP 419. This was reissued dated Jan 16 and can be downloaded from the Defence Intranet accessible via the Defence Gateway.

Personnel are required to make a personal contribution towards all AT Expeditions. This must at least match the grant from public funds.

Public Funds for AT have been made available via the Army AT Fund (£100 PP or Max £200 PP for Prestigious Expeditions with SO2AT approval, funding held in Aldershot).

Applications for non-public funding can also be made. In the case of The RLC The RLC Association Trust is a primary source.

There is also the Enhanced Commanding Officers Public Fund (Army) Non-Public Funds for AT, which is available through the Army Sports Lottery (You must be a member to apply).

It should be noted that public funds will only be authorised for Duty Status Expeditions. Service personnel are afforded duty status, whenever they are participating in an activity explicitly or implicitly authorised by the individual’s Commanding Officer. A JSAT Form must be completed for all AT Expeditions.

The JSAT Scheme

The Joint Services Adventurous Training (JSAT) Scheme provides formal training to progressively develop AT Instructors in specific outdoor activities, through specialised courses provided at JSAT Centres.

The JSAT Centres act as the centres of excellence for the respective JSAT activities and provide subject matter experts within their specialised areas.

There are nine AT centres funded by the three services as the cornerstones of JSAT:

  • Joint Services Adventurous Sail Training Centre (JSASTC) Gosport
  • Joint Services Sub-Aqua Diving Centre (JSSADC) Fort Bovisand
  • Joint Services Mountain Training Centre (JSMTC (I)) Indefatigable
  • Cyprus Joint Services Adventurous Training Centre (CJSATC) Dhekelia
  • Joint Services Parachute Centre (JSPC (N)) Netheravon
  • Joint Services Parachute Centre (JSPC (L)) Lippspringe
  • Joint Services Parachute Centre (JSPC (W)) Weston On The Green
  • Joint Services Gliding Centre (JSGC) Halton
  • Joint Services Hang Gliding and Paragliding Centre (JSHPC) Crickhowell

The Army holds sponsorship responsibility for Canoeing, Caving, Mountaineering and Skiing.

Information about Joint Services Sailing Expeditions can be obtained from the Joint Services Adventurous Sailing Training Centre, Gosport.  Tel: 02392765971 Email: navynps-peoplesptjsastcgroup@mod.gov.uk

Personnel attending formal courses at JSAT centres are deemed to be ‘on duty’, the cost of travel to and from the centre must be by cheapest available means and is payable as a charge against unit travel budgets.

Travel costs for approved activities (other than formal courses) at the centres must be met from AT funds or the individual concerned.

More information is available from each individual training centre.

Over the last two weeks, seven members of the 17 Port and Maritime Regiment RLC, Marchwood Regimental Dive Team successfully organised the ‘deep phase’ of Exercise SUBMERGED CRUSADER 21 in the Isle of Skye, Scotland. In total, 20 divers took part in numerous training serials including: live decompression up to depths of 42m, ultrathermic cutting, hydraulic tools, search and recovery and a seabed survey in the murky depths of Loch Alsh, Loch Akin and Loch Na Beiste. The team were ably supported by the dive tender MV Moorhen and a Navy Chamber crew from the Defence Diving School who conducted lessons on safely recovering a diver to a recompression chamber.#BritishArmyLogistics #WeSustain #WeAreTheRLC ...

RLC personnel from BATUK have been helping to make donations of food and books to Hope and Homes Recreation Centre, a local orphanage home to 56 children in Kenya. Hope and Homes first became a registered recreation centre in 2011 by Suzanne Wangiru. Suzanne created the centre in order to rehabilitate street children, as well as orphans and young girls that have been rescued form early marriages. Cpl Shannon Stevens who is currently on detachment from 13AASR, commented on her experience visiting this fundamental centre: “When we entered the Centre, we were taken by surprise as there were more children than we had imagined there would be. We helped to distribute food, drawing books and reading books and the children were ecstatic. It was a surreal experience at Hope and Homes, full of differing emotions, but it was definitely a great opportunity for the members of CSS 2nd Line to engage with the community creating a better working relationship with BATUK.”Major R Crane MBE RLC, SO2 CSS BATUK commented: “Witnessing the delight on the kids’ faces when they received the books and clothes that had been donated by friends and families across UK was very humbling. There are so many children in need and every little helps.” #BritishArmyLogistics #WeSustain #WeAreTheRLC ... See MoreSee Less
