ALI to review MoD training following Deepcut death reports

The ALI (Adult Learning Inspectorate) will begin inspection of Ministry of Defence (MoD) training this month.

This will include training offered to new recruits and will initially focus on duty of care and welfare issues.

The announcement that the ALI would carry out the inspections came in June, after a report into the deaths of four recruits at the Deepcut barracks in Surrey concluded they had committed suicide.

The ALI said it had created a confidential e-mail service on its website for any existing or previous member of the armed forces, or their families, to pass on information about initial training within the army, navy or air force. The e-mail will go directly to the leading inspector who will follow up each complaint or query in confidence.

Nicky Perry, Director of Inspection, said: “The website is an important tool for us. Anyone with an interest in MoD training will be able to access the terms of reference, the memorandum of understanding and the information given to the House of Commons Select Committee.
