Length of scheme

New recruits may remain on the Scheme for a maximum of five years.  While Qualified Technical Officers are encouraged to apply for promotional positions (off the Scheme) where they are suitably qualified, if they have not won a position at the end of five years, they will come off the Scheme and remain as a permanent member in either the section they are working at the time, or another suitable section, subject to negotiations with the section manager.
