Build on your skills

CVQO gives you the chance to study for a vocational qualification for free.

Why would you want to do that? Because it can massively increase your chances of getting a good job (and earning more money) or entering further education.

It could really change your life.
We’re not just saying that. It’s already happened for thousands of people like you – building on the skills you’ve already gained as a cadet or in your work.

Can I apply?
Yes, if you’re over 16 and in the Army Cadet Force (ACF) we will pay for you to study for one of the selected vocational qualifications.

What are the courses and qualifications?
If you’re a young cadet you can choose from BTEC courses in Public Services, Music and Engineering.

Working or volunteering adults can study Institute of Leadership and Management courses or City & Guilds courses.

We’ve chosen the courses so you’ll already have a head start with what you’ve learned as a cadet or in your work.

Where do I go next?
Speak to your Detachment Commander to get an application form.
