Hi
I have just applied for the RAF reserves as a Dental Nurse. I am 35 a mother of 2 and i just wanted some advice ....
I have a part time job as a dental nurse 4 days a week which I really enjoy but always wanted to join the RAF.
How many days in the year will the reserves want me? Im just thinking for annual leave in my current job?
Many thanks

HI, I don't believe you need to use annual leave, I think the government ensures your employer gives you time off to attend the RAF as a reserve, (I know the NHS does).The RAF web page says you must be able to commit 27 days per year for 12 years minimum. Original post by Emmielang)

Hi

You'll be required to take a block of two weeks each year for training/exercises - The first year is your initial/basic training at RAF Halton - but other than that it's one weekend per month for your training/work required on the Sqn you're on.

If you speak to your employer they should be able to advise you with regards to time off for Reserve support. They can also discuss this with the RAF if they need/want to.

You could also join the Regular RAF up to the age of 47 too as the age limit has just been increased.

Kind regards
Adam
