New Instructor Qualification- 17/04/2017

One of our members of staff, PO (SCC) Patrick Devaney, has recently gained his RYA Intermediate Planing Windsurfing Instructor qualification - after spending a week at Colwyn Bay Watersports Centre in North Wales. 

By gaining this qualification we are now able to instruct cadets up to their RYA Stage 4 Windsurfing certificate, which is the highest qualification available in the youth scheme. We are looking forward to getting on the water for our boating weekend at the end of this month when we will be able to put this qualification to use!

District First Aid Competition- 06/04/2017

Our unit recently participated in the first-ever district level first aid competition! Both our cadet team and staff team were tasked over the course of a parade night with dealing with various first aid situations, such as seriously bleeding and unconscious casualties, and were scored on how effectively they managed the situation as well as on their skills in working as a team.

After multiple rounds of both individual and team assessments, the results were calculated and both our cadet and staff teams awarded with gold medals! We will build upon this fantastic result by scheduling more first aid scenario training into our parade night training programme - so that these teams can pass on their skills to our younger cadets.

Unit Review- 04/04/2017

After much preparation, tonight our unit was visited by staff from district and area level for our annual unit review. The purpose of this review process is to ensure that we are delivering our cadets the best experience possible, and to assign our score we have been assessed in multiple areas such as cadet advancement, number of qualifications gained, and community outreach. Over the course of the evening our cadets also underwent a formal uniform inspection and had a chat with the visiting officers about their time in our unit.

We are still awaiting the results of this process, however we are confident that we will either maintain or improve upon the fantastic results that we have achieved in previous years.
