Scrutiny of training, care & welfare provided to Armed Forces

The Rt. Hon. Adam Ingram MP, Minister for the Armed Forces, yesterday announced the introduction of independent inspection of the training, care and welfare provided by the Armed Forces.

Under the new proposals, the Adult Learning Inspectorate (ALI) will be able to routinely inspect training establishments across the whole of the Armed Forces including initial training establishments. This will give them the responsibility to report on care and welfare issues, including commenting on any bullying or harassment they find. The ALI already inspects a number of service facilities.

Adam Ingram said: "I believe that these new proposals will deliver important benefits across all three services. It will enable us to build substantially on the work we have already done, ensure continued and sustained improvements, and enhance the transparency of our training and education provision, which will for the first time be benchmarked against national standards and good practice."

The MOD and ALI plan to sign a Memorandum of Understanding later this year. The first inspection will begin in the autumn of this year and will focus on initial training establishments across all three services, including Deepcut.

The first report is expected to be with Ministers by the Easter of 2005, when it will be published.
