While I agree with some of the author's points regarding the difficulty of identifying those individuals who have the aptitude to excel in this challenging field, I don't believe the plan to develop these folks at UCT is sustainable. The numbers just aren't there. The mission of the school house is to provide entry level training for the entire community and then identify those with the possible skills that require further development. This "AF" model works because the numbers are there. The only other way to pull this off would be to develop a Joint entry level program. That opens up a whole other can of worms that are too numerous to get into here.
