The UK plans to deploy 1,050 UK Service personnel to facilitate the training of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It is estimated that 900 of these will be responsible for the training aspect of the programme. The numbers are based on estimates and may scale up as the training programme progresses.

These personnel are held at readiness and may not necessarily be deployed immediately or simultaneously.
