A cohort of the Army’s most senior soldiers gathered online to take part in an overhauled incarnation of the regimental sergeant majors’ course.
The five-day package – which prepares the warrant officers for life and responsibilities at the top of their leadership chain – was delivered digitally for the first time.
While there had been plans to extend the training as well as beef up the syllabus this year, they were put on hold as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Army Sergeant Major Gav Paton, who addressed delegates during one of the online sessions, said: “My future main goal is to see the length of the course doubled.” “There were changes to content this year, but I hope to see the training evolve.”
