Oct. 2016. Cadets from Orkney joined others from across the Highlands from all three cadet services (army, air, and sea) for a weekend workshop on Presentation Skills and Public Speaking. Whilst it is hoped that this will benefit ACF, we also anticipate a personal benefit to the individual cadets in terms of their school and personal life. Not only were the cadets learning presentation skills but also gaining in confidence.
The culmination of the weekend was when cadets in groups or singly gave a 3 to 4 minute presentation on the experiences in the ACF and what they had gained from them. The audience for this presentation consisted of 40 fellow cadets, 8 adult instructors, and 18 parents and VIPs.
