After attending pre-promotion board selection six cadets were selected to attend the NCO promotion board for real.  The board consisted of Flt Lt Barry C Thomas, Officer Commanding as president along with Sergeants J Evans, R Peckham, K Gould and Instructor Staff Cadet Flt Sgt N Fitzgibbon.

The vacancies to be covered were four Junior NCOs and two Senior NCOs.  The candidates were asked a wide range of questions covering many aspects of the ATC, such as basic knowledge of the ATC and hypothetical scenarios about welfare and disciplinary issues.

The promotion boards ran for most of the evening and the results were announced on final parade. The successful cadets were Instructor Cdt Flt Sgt N Cooper, Cdt Sgt J Aston, and Cdt Cpls J Norris, H Maine, J Aston and J Townsend.

However, the six cannot rest of their laurels just yet as they are on a three month probationary period, during which they will be regularly accessed and at the end of the three months they will be attending their final board to confirm their ranks, one way or the other.

The promotion boards are held not only with the purpose of selecting new NCOs and to advance others but also to give them the experience of an interview situation that they will certainly call on in later life.
