There are two types of opportunity for volunteers: uniformed and non-uniformed. Uniformed instructors serve a six month probationary period and if you have previous experience in the armed forces or Merchant Navy you can apply for direct entry. Many uniformed instructors are ex-cadets, passing on the skills they learned during their time in the ranks.
Non-uniformed volunteers can apply to join Sea Cadets at any age. Many are introduced to the charity when a son or daughter expresses an interest in joining. Quite often, both parent and child will join, and husband and wife teams are common.
Here is a brief insight into some of the roles available:
Teach cadets a wide variety of skills and qualifications. Eligible for promotion through the rank structure.
