9.1 Introduction

The updated Promotion System has been agreed, albeit some minor tweaks may occur along the way.


Promotions will now be completed as outlined within this section.



9.2 Recommendations

Recommendations to Company HQ for Lance Corporal will be made by people who hold the rank of Corporal and above to Company HQ through the Chain of Command.


Recommendations to Company HQ for Corporal will be made by people who hold the rank of Sergeant and above to Company HQ through the Chain of Command.

Recommendations to Company HQ for that of Sergeant, will be made by Platoon HQ which will be reviewed by Company HQ.

A recommendation for promotion will be given to individuals that show the correct attitude, knowledge and enthusiasm.



9.3 Acting - Infantry

Acting will be a vital part of this promotion structure. A member that is showing the correct aptitude can be given an acting rank, but will have to complete the relevant promotion course within a period not exceeding 3 months from the seniority date of his acting rank.


Members who then complete the relevant course, will have the date of completion as their set Seniority date for that rank, and not the date they became acting.

Members who proceed to go on ELOA or transfer to the reserves will have their acting rank removed.

This section can be overruled by Company HQ if there is an Operational requirement.




9.4 Completion of Phase Three Courses, Tuition and Administration

The higher up the chain you go, it is essential that you have a greater understanding of how best to utilise those under your command as well as those detachments at the units disposal. As such, at various levels of the Promotion Structure, members will be required to complete various Phase Three Courses to gain such an understanding.


Although not necessary, tuition is an important skill that you will be required to use if you gain Promotion, as such, offering assistance and time to G7 may assist your promotion prospects and add to your own knowledge.



9.5 Promotion Boards - Infantry

A Promotion Board, usually consisting of the Company HQ and respective Platoon HQ's will assess performance, attributes and potential of candidates put forward for promotion.


For Promotion to the rank of Lance Corporal and above, the recommendation shall be forwarded by the respective Section IC and further reviewed by Platoon HQ.

For Promotion to the rank Sergeant and above, the recommendations shall be reviewed by Company HQ.
