Just as there are Cadet courses run throughout the Region, there are also
Staff courses. These courses can be organised at a Squadron, Wing,
Regional or even National level. The type of courses available ranges
from short introductory courses to the Air Cadet Organisation through to
week long courses about Navigation or Propulsion. Wings often organise
courses for Health and Safely Training, Adventure Training Qualifications,
Media Skills, First Aid. There are almost as many opportunities for
the Staff as there are for the Cadets.
Adult Vocational Qualifications
Your voluntary work can be rewarded through awards which CVQO has
successfully mapped to Air Cadet courses. Your attendance on many of these
courses means you may have already achieved up to 75% of the award
requirements. So why not make the most of your hobby?
These awards are subsidised by the Air Cadet Organisation in recognition of
the value of your contribution to the Cadet services. And what's more, these
awards are already great value. Through CVQO you would pay a third of the
comparative cost of applying directly through City & Guilds and a fifth of
the cost compared to enrolling direct with ILM for a Level 3 qualification.
CVQO provides you with as much support as you need to reach your end goal.
All of our awards are mapped to cadet courses that you do as part of your
hobby. The learning schedule is convenient and allows you to fit your
learning around other commitments so you can study at your own pace. There
aren't even any enrolment deadlines to worry about. The variety of awards on
offer is diverse and constantly expanding. Currently available to you are:
City & Guilds Graduateship in Youth Management and Training (Level 6)
City & Guilds Licentiateship in Youth Leadership and Training (Level 4)
ILM Introductory Certificate in First Line Management (Level 3)
Edexcel NVQ Verification Award (Level 4)
Edexcel NVQ Assessor Award (Level 3)
