Five cadets from Greater Manchester ACF hoping to be selected to attend a 6-week trip to Canada in the summer.

Each year the Royal Canadian Army Cadets run courses during July and August. Cadets that are selected to go to Canada will work alongside the Canadian Cadets. The three courses available are:

Cadet Leadership and Challenge Course: The Cadet Leadership and Challenge Course takes place at Rocky Mountain, Alberta.

Cadet Expedition Instructor Course: The Cadet Expedition Instructor Courses take place in Whitehorse, Yukon and Argonaut, New Brunswick.

Fitness & Sport Instructor Course: The Fitness & Sport Instructor Course takes place at Argonaut, New Brunswick.

Army Cadets from across the UK selected at regional level, will attend a final selection at Cwrt-y-Gollen Cadet Training Centre, Crickhowell in Wales, in April.

At the NW Regional Selection, the cadets took part in various activities which included a fitness test and an individual interview with the HQ NW Cadet Training Team. All will be advised over the next week or two who has been successful in going forward to the final stage.

Well done everyone for your hard work in getting to this stage and good luck to all the cadets that you are all selected.

Thank you to SSI Jo Bashir, No 2 (Kohima) Company, for the pictures.
