"As each student has discovered during the past two weeks, these International NCO Leadership courses intrigue participants by engaging them on topics vital to the success of every military organization--leadership, mentorship, communication and ethics,” he added.
Firmly committed to the development of its NCO Corps, the Alliance has worked for the past decade to enhance NATO’s NCO education and engagement programs.
"Some of these developments include establishing Command Senior Enlisted Leader positions across the NATO command structure, developing NCO recognition programs such as Allied Command Operations’ Military Members of the Year Award, creating the Bi-Strategic Command NCO Strategy and Guidelines and, earlier this year, launching the first ever internationally endorsed reference curriculum for NCO professional military education,” said General Breedlove.
While the Advanced leadership course is tailored to NCO’s in the rank of OR-8/9 there are many PME opportunities for the NATO NCO corps.
