Sea Cadets 12-18
Get to grips with subjects both on water and land as part of basic training, all on a nautical theme. You can take part in courses and competitions ranging from rock climbing and shooting to music, power boating and sailing. These can give you a head start in life and boost your confidence, plus it's good fun.
General training for advancement
There is inbuilt progression in all the training. Topics encountered by new entrants are revisited as the cadets rise in seniority. These cover areas such as the organisation of a sea cadet unit up to organisation of the Sea Cadet Corps; ranks and ratings starting with sea cadets only and expanding to recognition of ranks and ratings in all the services and how they relate; safety awareness and first aid; general nautical vocabulary and routines; practical elements from basic drill to care of the uniform to basic knots and ropework.
Specialisations and Proficiencies
These are specialist areas that the cadets can choose to focus on according to what interests them in particular. Some can be studied at the unit, at least at the early stages, but to achieve the highest level qualification would usually involve attending courses held elsewhere.
The areas most often covered by our cadets are
Piping, Cook/steward, Engineering, Seamanship and PT.
Other subjects are
First Aid, Communications, Adventure training(camping), Shooting, Meteorology, Subaqua diving.
It is possible to convert come of the qualifications into BTEC qualifications and to work on the Duke of Edinburgh scheme.
