9780112711766: Managing Risks to the Welfare of Recruits in the British Armed Services

This report sets out the findings of the independent review undertaken by the Adult Learning Inspectorate into the UK armed forces initial training regime, in order to evaluate the adequacy of steps being taken to safeguard the welfare of recruits. The report was commissioned by the Ministry of Defence in May 2004, following a police recommendation for independent oversight of care standards in the light of the deaths of four young soldiers at the Deepcut army barracks in Surrey between 1995 and 2002. Overall, the review finds that the training and care needs of young recruits is not sufficiently well managed, with inconsistencies in approach amongst the army, navy and air force, among establishments and even within establishments. The greatest areas of concern are identified within the Army, although not confined to it. The report makes a series of recommendations for improvements under the following headings: leadership and management; selection and training of instructors; equality of opportunity; recruitment services; induction and education; contact with families; accommodation, meals and recreation; support and welfare; physical training; firearms; bullying and harassment; dealing with complaints; suicide and self-harm; linking the phases of training; and leaving training.
