I travel again

  1. Oct 22, 2004 #1
    Hi All,

    Tomorrow, at 11:45 am, I am off to Knellar Hall to attend the Annual (and National) Advanced Musicians Course. I will be there until Friday then I will be back in Portsmouth for a while and then I am off to the JCIC at a local Barracks until Sunday. I have to make a speech for the JCIC and I don't really want to go but never mind. I am off.

    See you all on Late Sunday or Monday. :biggrin:

    All have fun posting and PM where my posts are I need to reply to. :smile:

    Aah the JCIC.... not much of a challenge if I recall, as long as your lesson plans are textbook. The SCIC on the other hand is a major challenge, but if like me, you pass it, then the world is your oyster and you are worshipped by cadets and adults alike... well I was anyway.

    It is Army Cadets. I was a member... possibly the greatest my detachment had seen :tongue2:

    JCIC - Junior Cadet Instructors Cadre. Basically means you get shouted at for a weekend, taught how to teach a lesson and then tested on your own teaching abilities where you teach one lesson.

    SCIC - Senior Cadet Instructors Cadre. Basically means you get shouted at and bullied for a week, are helped in teaching more senior cadets, and tested on your teaching abilities, where you teach 4 lessons on different areas of the army life.

    I remember my SCIC fondly. Especially the time I got busted down from Staff Sergeant to cadet for the day, and told that I had failed the course because I got the people on my course to chant "Stella, Stella, Stella Artois" as they were marching. Plus all the character boosting beastings I got the day I was in charge of the group... it was directed at the group but because I was in charge, I had to take the full force of it. At the end of the course I was a stronger man.

    The SCIC is run by regular soldiers, who are used to dealing with people like me :tongue:

    I'm back and I feel a lot more confident.

    SCIC sounds too much for me. Way too much. But JCIC was good.
