New Period of Instruction for Task Group Taji 8 (1.10 mins)

The hard work of the joint Australian-New Zealand training mission in Iraq, Task Group Taji, is paying off with the School of Infantry NCO 2 facility (formerly the Baghdad Fighting School) moving closer to self-sufficiency as it trains the 55th Brigade of the Iraqi Army. For the third time, the School of Infantry NCO 2 is leading the training. Task Group Taji, now in its eighth rotation, oversees the training of the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) at the Taji Military Complex, 20 kilometres north of Baghdad. The priority for Task Group Taji 8 is providing support to the School of Infantry NCO 2 in its instructor development. School of Infantry NCO 2 instructor training involves lessons on how to plan, organise, deliver and assess a wide range of training packages primarily focussed on core infantry skills such as shooting, field craft, and manoeuvre at squad, platoon and company levels. Since 2015, Task Group Taji has overseen the training of more than 41,500 members of the ISF, allowing the ISF to secure and stabilise areas of Iraq that are now cleared of Daesh.
