Are you over 20? Seeking a new challenge? Adventure? Would
you like to develop skills, leadership qualities and
gain qualifications too?
Here at 2418 Sherwood Squadron, we constantly assess our
past achievements, implement changes to meet the challenges of today and make
plans for the future. And a huge part of that planning is you. As the backbone
of our squadron we're always on the look out for high-calibre individuals
to become volunteers, helping to run the activities that play such an important
role in the lives of our young members.
All kinds of people make up our
volunteer staff, coming from a range of backgrounds and interests. Obviously if
you have direct experience of working with young people, or any relevant skills
such as flying or gliding, you would be particularly welcome. These aren't
essential though, as we will train and support you at every stage.
That said, you'll have some personal
qualities that are essential, such as patience, maturity and responsibility
along with an understanding of young people and their needs.
What can you gain from the Air Cadets
It's not just the cadets that we like to see excel. We lead by example, and only by having fully trained, qualified and capable staff can we encourage confident, responsible cadets. We’ll supply all the training you require for the activities you assist with or lead, including health and safety, first aid and leadership courses which are essential to a safe environment in which the cadets can be physically challenged with adventurous training and competitive sports.
