Abstract : The career progression and performance of 76 soldiers who required remedial training during recruit training, was compared with a sample of peers. A significant difference on the variables performance on recruit training, performance on IET, selection for subject one for corporal and charges was found, as well as a non significant trend for poor performance on all other variables. It was concluded that recruits who require remedial training are able to give effective service, albeit at a slightly lower level than their peers. (Author)
