Information Circular No 2/2016: Amendment of Criteria for Promotion To Corporal (Tech)

By Industrial Relations Officer

Following negotiation at DFHQ Forum, it has been agreed to amend the promotional criteria for Corporal vacancies within Technical Units, and Corporal vacancies for Chefs within Line Units.

This criteria is designed to balance the conflicting interests of personnel who are qualified to undertake the role of Corporal with the requirement of Units to have suitably qualified and competent staff at Corporal level.

The amendment provides as follows:

1.     Within each Unit the following criteria will be used in the promotion of suitably qualified Pte’s to the Rank of Cpl (Tech)

a.   Relevant Corps Technical experience employed in a Tech appointment on   completion of a Trainee Technician Scheme (TTS) or DJ7 approved equivalent.

b.   Longest Qualified (Pot NCO Course completed).

c.   Length of service.

d.   Should length of service be the same for two personnel, seniority will be determined by service number.

 

2.     Within each Unit the following criteria will be used in the promotion of suitably qualified Pte’s to the Rank of Cpl (Chef):

a.   Must have successfully completed the following or DJ7 approved equivalent courses:

(i)         Young entry Chef Course.

(ii)        Advanced Chef Course.

(iii)       Junior Management Chef Course.

b.   Longest Qualified (Pot NCO Course completed).

c.   Length of service.

d.   Should length of service be the same for two personnel, seniority will be determined by service number.

 

It should be noted that no changes have been made to the existing criteria for promotion to Corporal Line.
