HOME LEARNING RESOURCES WHILE IN LOCKDOWN

The RLC has been asked by personnel serving in the Field Army about available learning resources that can be conducted at home throughout the partial lockdown period.

Apprenticeships – A link to The RLC’s apprenticeship provider, Pearson TQ’s BKSB online learning portal can be found HERE

Apprentices will be sent their own log in details by their Functional Skills Tutor.

The Business School UK – Following liaison, The Business School UK has agreed that personnel can access CILT levels 2 to 5 courses for free via its platform.  Those who subsequently wish to enrol and achieve the qualification can do so following submission of the relevant assessments and receipt of payment.  Interested personnel are invited to email the Business School to express an interest. Please include details of trade, trade courses completed and rank to help ensure access to the appropriate course and level.  This access is available until the end of the lockdown period and is available for both ‘mapped’ and open military courses.

The Royal Logistic Corps

321 EOD & Search Squadron of 11 EOD & Search Regiment RLC hosted a special guest, the Colonel-in-Chief, HRH The Princess Royal, as part of its anniversary commemorating 50 years of operations in Northern Ireland. The Sqn was also joined by the Colonel RLC, Colonel Jon West ADC.

11 EOD & Search Regiment RLC is widely dispersed across 14 locations in the UK. The Regiment routinely responds to around 2,500 operational EOD and Search call-outs each year in support of the police and other major events.

As the sole EOD & Search capability in Northern Ireland, 321 Sqn have a significant workload, operating constantly at Extremely High Readiness and responding operationally several hundred times each year. Last year, the Sqn completed 271 EOD tasks and 64 Search tasks.

The Regiment and Squadron employ specialists from multiple cap badges, principally RLC, Royal Engineers and Royal Signals.

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.

A new strategy for The Royal Logistic Corps

Defence is faced with an increasingly uncertain global and strategic outlook. Defence Support underpins this global activity, but maintaining today’s arrangements to support a force that will be
operating at greater reach and tempo is not an option – a transformation is required.

What is true for Defence Support is true for the Royal Logistic Corps. So the Corps can play its part, the Master General of Logistics, Lt Gen Sir Mark Poffley KCB OBE, has launched the Corps’ new strategy, which will enable The RLC to adjust to the needs of the Army, Defence and the Nation.
