Lt Flynn

Zooming through Adult Development

This week, Lt Matt Flynn and Lt Rachael Jones-Morris have both successfully completed the the KGVI Leadership Qualification, all from the comfort of their own homes!

Zooming through Adult Development

22 January 2021

  • Gwent And Powys ACF

Due to the current situation, the course was run virtually, allowing Adult Instructors to continue their training and development in preparation for the time when face-to-face training resumes.

Fifty delegates took part from across the UK and out as far as Jersey! It was extremely well run with efficient rooms changes, where delegates were able to benefit from the experience of staff with a broad knowledge base and wide range of skills. The enhanced leadership skills developed throughout the week give the opportunity for those who complete to be promoted to SMI or Captain, dependent on the eligibility criteria.

There were lots of very informative speakers, including Colonel Urquhart from the ACFA and staff from Regional Command with some very interesting updates in regards to the new APC syllabus and on the topic of weapons in detachments.

Traditionally held at Frimley, the certified course usually offers delegates lots of opportunities for networking, development of working relationships and the sharing of good practice and ideas. There is also the opportunity to complete the Institute of Leadership and Management Level 5 qualification. Although it was not quite the same in the virtual world, those taking part still enjoyed it and look forward to developing their leadership further back in their own counties.

We would like to offer our congratulations to both Lt Flynn and Lt Jones-Morris, and look forward to seeing how this experience feeds into their work with our Cadets and Adult Instructors across G&P and Wales.

"Despite being held virtually, it was still a fantastic course from which we learnt so much about leadership."
