  1. Arrival by Car. For candidates arriving by road, the RAFC Cranwell is located just off the A17 between Sleaford and Newark, 4 miles west of Sleaford. In the event of any difficulties arising on the day or any last minute changes to your travel arrangements you should telephone the OASC on: 01400 266745 or 01400 266792 during working hours or out of working hours the RAFC Cranwell Guardroom on 01400 267232. A map showing the location of RAF Cranwell is at the end of this Annex.


EXPENSES
Note for Serving Personnel – Serving Personnel claim expenses via JPA. Travel claim forms are for civilian candidate claims only.
N.B. OASC Reception is point of contact for all travel claim queries – 01400 26 6792


  1. Rail/Sea or Air Travel. If you requested a ticket for travel by air, sea (e.g. Isle of White) or rail within the United Kingdom, your rail ticket retrieve code, or e-ticket (for air travel) will be sent to you directly by email from your AFCO. Candidates from overseas (i.e. outside the UK) locations should note that travel will only be paid for from the port, airport or railhead of arrival in the UK. Bus fares that you have to pay will be refunded provided that you have a receipt.




  1. Car Travel. If you prefer to travel by private car, mileage claims are only admissible if you have not been issued with rail/sea or air tickets. Once rail/sea or air tickets have been issued, mileage claims are inadmissible.



  1. Cashing of Cheques. Please note that at Cranwell, we are unable to cash cheques. Consequently, you are advised to bring enough money for drinks, etc, whilst you are at Cranwell and to cover incidental expenses for your return journey.


WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU



  1. Documents. Make a special point of bringing the original copy of your birth certificate, passport or driving licence for identification purposes.




  1. Clothing. During testing and whilst in OASC buildings you are to wear smart dress, strictly no T-shirts, sports clothes, jeans or training shoes. Please bring a change of clothing to wear in the evening. For the ladies, you are advised to wear low-heeled shoes for the aptitude testing. We do not provide soap, towels, or coat hangers - remember to bring your own. Don’t forget an alarm clock!



SOCIAL AND DOMESTIC



  1. Special Dietary Requirements. If you are a vegetarian, provision already exists to cater for your needs. If, however, you have a requirement for a special diet on religious, ethnic or other grounds then you should write and tell us what it is on receipt of these notes. Every effort will then be made to cater for your needs.




  1. Illness. If you don’t feel well at any time whilst you are at Cranwell, tell any officer or member of the OASC staff and they will direct you to the Medical Centre. If your illness is only temporary, it will merely delay the procedure; if it seems likely to last for more than a day, we will arrange for you to complete boarding at a later date.


COMMUNICATIONS


  1. Post. The postal address is:

The Officers and Aircrew Selection Centre

Adastral Hall,

PO Box 1000

Cranwell

Sleaford


Lincolnshire

NG34 8GZ



  1. Telephone. The telephone number for the RAFC is 01400 – 26 plus the extension you require. Useful extensions are:

- During normal working hours Ext 6718 (Candidate Processing), and Ext 6792 (Reception).


- At all other times and in cases of urgent calls Ext 7232/7252 (Main Guardroom).

VALUABLES AND INSURANCE



  1. Valuables. Do not leave any cash or valuables lying about; keep them with you. Report any loss immediately to the Candidates’ Mess staff, the OASC reception staff, or the duty staff at the Main Guardroom situated on Cranwell Avenue.




  1. Insurance. It is important that you note that the Ministry of Defence considers claims on the basis of its legal liability in common law, which means that liability for compensation for injury or loss will only be accepted where it can be shown that the MOD, its servants or agents have acted negligently in the course of their official duty. The MOD has no legal liability to meet claims for injury or loss caused by ‘pure accident’ or an ‘Act of God’. Therefore, you are strongly advised to obtain personal insurance to cover your liabilities in these areas as you see fit. This is not compulsory but a matter of personal choice.
