GREAT SUCCESS FOR RLC STUDENTS OF THE UBI-TECH CPD PROGRAMME

Over the last year, 16 soldiers from The Royal Logistic Corps have successfully graduated from the University of Wolverhampton with a Post Graduate Certificate in Wireless Communications.

This level seven qualification, taught by Ubi-Tech and accredited by the University of Wolverhampton, has been delivered as Continuous Professional Development to The RLC since August 2016.

All personnel who work within a communications capacity may attend the course, providing they have served for a minimum of three years since their trade training. During the programme, students spend three weeks being taught about the key design aspects of modern wireless and radio engineering, cellular networks and advanced wireless technologies during a period of classroom-based learning. After this, the research degree nature of the course means that the students then continue their learning by completing their own research in preparation for three assignments based on each course module. The qualification provides 60 UCAS points (one third of a Masters) so those students that wish to, can also go on to complete a Post Graduate Diploma.

The expectations on this course are high and all students who graduate and receive their award from the University, have completed their assignments to the required standard, passing the comprehensive marking process. Maria Hall, Ubi-Tech’s Operations Manager, commented:

“The dedication of all RLC students is admirable and they should be extremely proud of themselves.”

This year, the following RLC soldiers have graduated; all of whom will be taking part in a planned graduation ceremony at The Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton in Summer 2021:

LCpl Steven Stupple, Cpl Mitchell Hussey, Cpl Dean Middleton, Cpl Jordan Keeling, Cpl Callum Miller, Cpl Matthew Frankham, Cpl Stuart Chadwick, Cpl Jamie Johnson, Cpl Carl Scott, Cpl Damian Blades, Sgt Craig Tapper, Sgt Adam Edris, Sgt Samuel Higgins, SSgt Jermaine Shaw, SSgt Nathan Flint, WO2 Kathryne Johnson.

Ubi-Tech is planning to hold the next course for RLC soldiers in Leconfield from the 13th – 26th February 2021. Anyone who is interested in enrolling should contact WO1 Mark Gill: Mark.Gill951@mod.gov.uk

Sports awards winners 2022 : Team of the year Royal Logistic Corps Cycling Association (RLCCA) Ladies team (Road and Mountain bike) are leading the way in Army Cycling.The success of the RLCCA Ladies team has grown from strength to strength over the last six years. Road Team Captain and Manager Maj Michelle Debono-Evans and 2IC Capt Sue Chittock combined with Major Tracey Mackenzie-Rayner for Mountain biking changed this by leading from the front on the bike and also igniting a successful recruitment drive for new ladies. The RLC ladies now field 4 of the 10 members of the Army Ladies Road Race Team and one of the 5 members of the Army XC MTB Team. Their list of achievements includes winning the Williams Cup in successive years (2018 and 2019), the only team to have their name on the trophy to date (taking into consideration the cancelled events in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID), they took second place in the Inter Corps Championships and numerous podium places across Senior, Masters, Grand Masters and the Team Categories every year. E-cycling popularity during the COVID restrictions, provided further opportunity to demonstrate their ability, with the RLC Ladies’ team leading the way in the Army Cycling Union e-racing series on Zwift. They have recorded consistent podium places and have been commended as the only Corps to field a full ladies’ team across the race series. The RLC fielded approximately a third of the ladies competing across the 2021/22 race series. ... See MoreSee Less
