Standard Learning Credits are unable to be used for an examination resit only, as a course of instruction must be included.</p><p>Military personnel are also entitled to use Colleges of Further Education to attend a variety of education courses and to take examinations and resits, subject to payment of the appropriate fees.</p> more like this

The cost for ATR Bassingbourn is based on costs for 2012/13 as this was the last year that Phase 1 training was carried out at that location.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>All Junior Entry recruits undertake their initial training at AFC Harrogate. They are provided with highly valuable vocational training opportunities which result in some 85% leaving initial training with Level 2 qualifications in literacy and numeracy. The greater length of service of Junior Entry personnel results in the Army having to recruit and train fewer personnel. This training contributes not only to individual development, but to society in the long term.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
