Read more about how the Programme SOCRATES Team, which sits within the Central Training School at RAF Halton, will transform RAF training for the Next Generation – page 10 and 11 in this Autumn’s Envoy magazine.

Every year the RAF delivers 2,000 courses, a million days of training and education, from initial training to instilling the professional skills required to undertake primary air and space roles – a vital component of the Next Generation RAF.

While the content of the training and education changes and evolves over time the delivery method has not. To meet the future requirements of the Next Generation Air Force under ASTRA, dependency on outdated and inefficient residential-based training must be reduced.
