Well done to Kent RE’s new Sergeants who have passed their AIC: Left to right: Cameron Anderson,Donna Ayley and Andrew Shannon.
We are always keen to find new adult volunteers to help. No military experience is necessary, only the desire to help with the development of young people. Adult instructors come from a variety of backgrounds and jobs and have included former Cadets, parents of Cadets and ex-service people. Interested?
We’re looking for capable, motivated men and women from all walks of life, ready to take up the challenge of working with Army Cadets. Through outdoor activities, fun challenges, training and mentoring you can help bring out the best in our teens. And yourself.
You must be over 18 to apply, but you don’t need to be super fit or have a military or teaching background. If you’ve got what it takes, we’ll provide the training. While money probably isn’t your prime motivator, Adult Instructors in the ACF are also financially rewarded with volunteer allowance for up to 28 days a year.
The benefits of being a Cadet Instructor
All Cadet Instructors are rewarded with training, personal development, an enhanced CV and immense satisfaction from being part of the cadet movement.
Cadet Instructors can travel to interesting places, make new friends and achieve qualifications in First Aid, diplomas and graduate level qualifications in Public Services through the BTEC scheme. This can also take you up to Degree and Masters levels.
As well as training in all the activities that cadets take part in, Cadet Instructors can also hone skills in leadership, management, administration, communication, teamwork, decision-making and influencing.
