WHAT IS LEAD FIRST?
Train and serve as a full time officer in the Army Reserve for up to 12 months. You'll spend time learning at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (8 weeks), before commissioning, and being given responsibility for leading and managing soldiers. You'll be given lots of activities and experiences on the programme to help you develop your leadership skills.
Lead First officers are given a Full Time Reserve Service contract, and will be paid, as well as be given food and accomodation while on the scheme.
Once you've finished the programme, you'll have the option to carry on serving as an officer in the Army Reserve if you want.
