Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I have my RAF basic training starting on 14th December this year, can anyone help me with regards to Christmas leave? I have read somewhere that you get the last Friday before Christmas until early January off but cannot find anything anywhere?

    what will happen most likely is you will travel down on the tues 13th, complete that week and have 2 weeks off starting back in the 2nd Jan.

    I am going off how it was last year for a few mates who started on the 18th, did the week, 2 weeks off and then restarted on the 5th Jan.

    Think about the DS. Do they want to be kicking around over Christmas? Unlikely.
