ADF announces return of gap year program

The new tactical data links will allow Australia's Tiger helicopters to share targeting data in the field."

Preparing the next generation of Australian Defence Force (ADF) soldiers is an important course of action, especially to keep defence roles filled with personnel over the next few years.  

That's why the ADF gap year program has returned, to ensure young Australians are able to experience what life inside the defence forces is actually like. With 2015 now underway, Assistant Minister for Defence Stuart Robert has welcomed young men and women into the program. 

He explained how the induction is a proud moment for the young Australians and will certainly represent a substantial change in their lives.  

"Their 12 months of service will give them the chance to experience an exciting and rewarding role with the ADF that will hopefully encourage them to join after they complete the ADF Gap Year program," Mr Robert said.  

A total of 260 Australians are set to join the program, with 60 signing up for the Air Force and 139 joining the Army.  

"Those chosen for the program learn practical and leadership skills, enjoy a healthy and varied lifestyle, and make friends for life - all while getting paid," Mr Robert said.  

It's a great opportunity, especially when personnel will get paid over $45,000 and receive subsidised accommodation and medical coverage.  

While there are places available in the Army and Air Force, there is no opportunity as yet to join the Navy - however this is set to change in the near future.
