Across Army, there is a wide range of trades, specialties and career pathways, and for many it can be a long time between opportunities to practice and enhance our tactical skills. For those not actively involved in combat roles, often the only opportunity to intensively practice all-corps tactical skills are career courses, and it can often be around five years between those courses. Understandably, there is a lot of skill fade that can occur if you don't practise these skills or create chances to refresh your knowledge.

This video, produced by the Army Learning Production Centre (ALPC), provides a comprehensive explanation and demonstration of a 'situation brief.' Whilst you might remember the rough composition of a situation brief, watching this video will no doubt enhance the quality of your next brief delivery and refresh you on a few pointers you might have forgotten since the last career course you attended.
