Young people aged 12 or over – and adults too – can get so much from being an army cadet!
You’ll be able to take part in activities, make new friends, go on expeditions and learn a lot – all while having great fun!
You can take part in fieldcraft, adventurous training, first aid, music, sports and shooting activities.
You’ll get the opportunity to go on annual camp with your new friends and meet cadets from other detachments in your county. You might go on expeditions further afield in the UK or even abroad.
The Army Proficiency Certificate (APC) training syllabus will teach you leadership skills, discipline and give you self-confidence. You’ll learn skills like make decisions under pressure; taking command; planning and organising tasks and working in a team as well as independently. These skills will equip you for life and add an extra string to your bow at times when competition for college places and employment is fierce.
Through your cadet training you can also gain valuable qualifications such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, BTEC First Diploma in Public Services or Music or the ILM Certificate in Team Leading.
