The Combined Cadet Force (CCF) will be following a tried and tested training programme where they will be instructed in drill, uniform upkeep, advanced skill at arms, field craft, range firing, first aid, map & compass, camp craft, rifle ranges, assault courses, military knowledge, command tasks, full bore rifle shooting, .22 rifle shooting, leadership training. All this will allow cadets to gain cadet qualifications along the way.
Adventure training is something the cadets will take part in throughout the year. Activities include high wire course, mountain biking, hill walking, climbing, orienteering, canoeing and abseiling to mention a few. Here they will learn technical skills, leadership and how to embrace the outdoors!
The CCF Annual Camp usually takes place on or around the beginning of the Summer holidays where Cadets will enjoy a full military training camp with support from the MOD Cadet Training Team. Here Cadets will also take part in exercises where they will live under a “poncho” and survive on ration packs whilst carrying out command tasks and challenges. There will also be time put aside for adventure training.
The CCF is here to help pupils between the ages of 12 and 18 to develop both personally and physically by providing a large range of fun, exciting, challenging and adventurous opportunities.ties.
