CVQO Leadership Course 2015

4 June 2015

Calling all VQ Officers, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers and CCF Contingent Commanders…

The time of year has arrived to begin thinking about your nominees for the CVQO Leadership Course in Somerset on 26 – 30 October.

Due to the popularity of last year’s course and with only 48 places available, this year CVQO is looking for a maximum of three cadets from each unit/contingent from across all cadet services.

Nominees should be listed in order of preference and CVQO will select one cadet per unit on a first come, first served basis. Other nominated cadets from a unit will be placed on a reserve list and will be contacted if a place becomes available.

In addition to enjoying the range of team and leadership activities on offer, the cadets will also complete an ILM Level 3 Award in Leadership & Management. The week-long course, including accommodation and meals, is funded by CVQO. The only cost to the cadet is the return travel from home to Outposts in Somerset (nearest mainline rail station is Taunton).

Cadets should be over 17 and under 19 on 1 Sept 2015. Due to the challenging nature of the course, applications will need to confirm the fitness level of entrants as part of the application process.
