The Educational and Training Services form part of the Adjutant General's Corps and have done since 1992 when this Corps of the British Army was formed. Their remit is to continue the general education of soldiers and officers alike, as well as the actual military training of the soldiers of the Army.
ETS is an all officer branch. It provides education to Regular and Reserve Army personnel, helping them to meet the challenges of the 21st century by training for certainty and educating for uncertainty. Officers are primarily employed as follows:
- Training and Development advisors (TDAs) who specialise in the creation, design, implementation and assurance of Army wide training and educational courses.
- Officers in Army Education Centres (AECs) developing soldiers command, leadership and management skills in order to prepare them for promotion.
- On operations as Learning Development Officers.
- Training development posts in the Directorate Training (Army) Capability Directorates, Army Recruiting and Training Division (ARTD) or in Defence Training Establishments.
- Headquarters, Operational and Training appointments
