Training and Education

We base the content of our training programme around the day to day skills a Cadet will need to participate in many of the exciting activities the Squadron participate in.

100 (Nantwich) Squadron teach a wide range of  valuable core skill, for example to complete your DofE expeditions you will require the the ability to navigate and plan, so map reading and orientation are the key to success. In addition to this a cadet will learn real life skills and gain important academic qualification that will benefit them if they choose to go to university or later in their career.

One of the most important skills a Cadet can learn is Leadership. Building confidence and teaching individuals to deal with different kinds of people and situations, taking charge of tasks and leading groups. Cadets who show a good level of skill could get to the Junior Leaders course - it's gruelling but what you get out of it will be invaluable to you for the rest of your life.

BTECs are always popular and a widely recognised qualification - all over the country more than 4,000 cadets have registered for the First Diploma in Public Services and over 6,000 have signed up for the First Diploma in Aviation Studies. There's also the increasingly popular First Diploma in Performing Arts (Music).

First Aid is another essential skill you can pick up - train in this important area and you may be awarded a certificate from St Johns Ambulance. If those skills were called upon you could make all the difference in a life or death situation.
