The Sea Cadet experience within individual Units is governed by how much adult support we receive from our Staff and Committee. All adult volunteers are vetted by the Criminal Records Bureau.
There are three main types of adult in the Corps, and they are described as follows:
Uniformed Instructors teach cadets a wide variety of skills and qualifications. These volunteers are eligible for promotion through the rank structure and wear the Uniform of the Royal Navy.
As a Uniformed Instructor, you can expect to earn useful skills and qualifications that will help you and the cadets in your care. Much of this training is offered within the Unit, or within the Corps and is offered at a fraction of the cost of external training.
Non Uniformed Instructor
Non Uniformed Instructors are valued just as much as their Uniformed counterparts, but have no wish to ascend the rank / rate ladder. Using existing skills to help train cadets, initially you will be asked to take part in some training (Induction, Safeguarding, First Aid) to keep cadets safe.
