Army Cadet Leaders at National Training Conference

30 November 2011

Over fifty Army Cadet Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) leaders packed the National Cadet Training Centre at Frimley Park last weekend (26 & 27 November) for their annual Training Conference.

Top of the agenda was making best use of “e-DofE” the electronic system of recording and managing participant’s involvement in the programme.

The National Cadet Training Centre at Frimley Park hosted delegates from all over the UK who were able to share best practice and hone their skills and knowledge on a whole range of topics from the training programmes available, to organising activities expeditions at all levels of the DofE's Award.        

“We aim to interest our cadets in taking up the challenge, and to help adults understand what is involved” says Lieutenant Colonel Alistair Spowage, Army Cadets DofE Development Manager.

Pictured at the Frimley launch are just some of the UK’s most willing and able adult volunteers who regularly help young people to achieve their full potential through cadets and the DofE's Award.
